By Marc Lallanilla

A team of law-enforcement officials including FBI agents has swooped down on a rural home in Indiana that houses a bizarre collection of artifacts from around the world.

“I have never seen a collection like this in my life except in some of the largest museums,” Larry Zimmerman, professor of anthropology and museum studies at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, told The Indianapolis Star. Zimmerman added that he is “frankly, overwhelmed.”
