Secret underground cave home discovered in Yakima Park


YAKIMA, Wash. -A man who says he tipped police off about an illegally-built underground cave inside Yakima's Sportsman's Park is offering a look inside. 

On his Facebook page, newly posted pictures show an elaborate underground home, framed with wood, complete with a bed, closet, stove, and mirror. In his post, the photographer said a mushroom hunter told him about the cave. After taking some pictures, he then reported it to a park ranger, who called police. 

Investigators told the Yakima Herald that the man who had been living in the cave had been there for about a year. They identified him as a 57-year-old homeless man.

The Herald reports that prosecutors have so far declined to file charges against the man.
