In May 1968, a well digger named Wilbur Riddle traveled along U.S. Route 25 in the Kentucky backwoods, collecting glass telephone pole insulators. In the midst of his search, he came upon a bundled up green tarp. Riddle nudged the mass with his foot, sending it down an embankment. In the rapid movement, the tarp unraveled to reveal the bundle within.
