Potatoes Au Rotten

My pantry has always smelled different.
When we first moved into the house, I thought it was because it was new, and the paint was extra potent. 
Later, I blamed it on the fact that we stored so many different things in there, and bought a scented candle to keep it smelling fresh.
About 2 weeks ago, the weird smell returned. 
I couldn't, for the life of me, think of what it could be. 
An ivestigation surfaced a probable suspect in the form of a bag of slightly wilted russet potatoes.
When the smell didn't go away by 2 days later, I reopened the case.
This time a questionable sippy cup and cracked jar of green olives were placed in a lineup.
When this did not offer relief, with the smell getting weirder and then more rancid, I launched an assault on the pantry.
I moved everything I thought I had moved previously.
I looked under things I am almost positive I had previously looked under.
And...
Have you ever seen a liquified potato?  I have. 
You're welcome for not taking pictures.
