Keys to a Secret Melody...

A mystery surfaced this weekend along a dirt road near Harwich, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. A piano of unknown origin found itself lost in the woods.

Discovered by a hiker at 3:00 PM Saturday, the Baldwin upright piano sitting peacefully in a wooded section of Bell's Neck Conservation Area has perplexed authorities. It was perfectly in tune and came complete with bench. Given its immense weight, this was no simple feat. It took several men to move the instrument back to storage as police await answers.

Was it theft, abandonment, or a prank? No one has come forward to claim it. The Arcosonic upright, model number 987 - serial number 733746, remains in police custody as local law enforcement search for its rightful owner. Anyone knowing information related to its origins or the individuals who moved it to the site are asked to contact Harwich police.

Is it the work of Liberace's ghost, a tortured pianist seeking solitude, or bored teenagers? The ivories aren't telling...

Maybe someone finally saved up enough for a Steinway and couldn't find a taker for the Baldwin. :)

Did it have rhinestones? Liberace was fond of rhinestone encrusted Baldwins which matched his flashy but unoriginal playing of main themes. :)

What a strange thing to stumble upon in the middle of nowhere, especially given its pristine condition. I wonder if it could not be some sort of apport.

In tune? Perfectly in tune? All right, I have to ask, what possible logical explanation could there be for such an otherwise illogical phenomenon?
