About 100 jars of human brains went missing from The University of Texas at Austin years ago, and the school kicked off an investigation this week as to their whereabouts.

The brains were originally transferred from the Austin State Hospital and were collected from various autopsies dating back to the 1950s. The jars are each labeled with a date and a diagnosis.

The collection includes schizophrenics and one even belongs to Charles Whitman, the sniper who killed 16 people on campus in 1966.

A renewed interest in the mystery was sparked by the recent release of a new book called After news of the the missing brains spread online, it was reported that the brains ended up at University of Texas in San Antonio, but this turned out to be incorrect, according to the New York Times.
