DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – The sausage surprise saga endured by a Deerfield Beach family has gotten people talking.
It was about 4 a.m. July 15 when 15 pounds of Italian sausage and pork chops make it to the roof of the Adair family's home.
The story catapulted itself all the way to central Florida, where the owner of Fussell's Frozen Food confirmed that he packed the sausage and sent it to Williams Land Service in January for the owner's personal use.
"Somewhere down the line, it had to come out of this freezer," Jimmy Fussell said.
But when Local 10 News contacted Williams Land Service, a representative couldn't say how the meat ended up on the Adair family's roof.
"Williams Land Service has been providing quality land management options in the Southeast region for over 30 years," the statement said. "We have not yet ventured into air mailing meat, but if we do, that will be the day pigs fly. However, we are dedicated to providing great service beyond our customers.
"We have tracked down the source of the mysterious Miami meat shower. Williams Land Service, Inc., in Myakka City, FL, requested the meat delivery from Fussell's Frozen Food, Inc. We strive, every day, to meet the expectations of our customers, and if needed, we will solve some mysteries, too.I hope this brings closure to the great Miami meat shower mystery."
Local 10 News viewers did try to crack the mystery.
Some suggested that the Federal Aviation Administration be contacted about the meat. One person guessed that it was all part of a prank, that someone wanted to see how far he or she could throw a bag of meat.
Another viewer blamed the hotdog cartoon character from Snapchat.
Even with the predictions, the mystery about the falling meat continues.
Whether it fell from the sky, was dropped by a tornado or shot from a slingshot, one thing is for sure. It catapulted this family in the spotlight.
The Adair family is set to appear on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" at 11:35 p.m. Wednesday.
