“A previous resident of the Grand Isles neighbourhood in Wellington, Florida, was checking the neighbourhood on Google Earth when he zoomed into the lake and saw what looked like a car,” The Guardian reported.

“The former resident contacted a current homeowner, who used a drone to confirm it was a white car on the edge of the pond behind his house,” the report further added.

The police and authorities were then called in and when they got the car out, they found the skeletal remains inside.
