    The Adams County Sheriff's Office posted a photo of the casket on its Facebook page Wednesday with a message to its unknown owners, saying they have found many things along the side of the road, "but this is a first."

    Sheriff's deputies in central Wisconsin say the case of a mysterious casket has been solved.

    The Adams County Sheriff's Office says the owner of the empty casket found on the side of a highway over the weekend has come forward to claim it.

    WAOW-TV reports the casket was used in a haunted hayride for Halloween. The sheriff's office says the coffin fell out of a boat that was being pulled by a truck.

    When the casket was discovered, the sheriff's office posted a photo of the coffin on its Facebook page with a message to the owner, saying: "It's a little creepy and we'd like to get it back to you."

    The owner will soon be reunited with the casket, according to the Facebook post.
