In what will come across as a really startling development police officers in the United Kingdom closed off a road for 31 hours after a walker found a 'dead body in wood. However, after closing the road, they discovered the 'dead body' was actually a 'dirty and overused' sex doll someone had dumped.
The 'crime scene' in Kineton, Warwickshire, was cordoned off by police and a forensic pathologist was called in to investigate after what appeared to be a hand and foot were spotted in undergrowth by a country lane.
Police later disclosed what they thought was a female corpse wasn't human remains but a 'realistic' inflatable love aid, which could be worth up to £1,500.
A local source told The Sun: 'The police thought they had a murder investigation on their hands so called in a forensics team.'
'When they finally dragged the 'corpse' out they realised the blunder. The officers had a big laugh about it. It was a very dirty, broken and overused sex doll,' they added.
Officers were said to be hunting for clues from midday on Tuesday to 7pm the following evening.
Warwickshire Police said it had followed 'proper procedure'.
A spokesperson added: ‘It is with great relief that we can announce the pathologist was able to identify the foot and hand beneath the bush did in fact belong to a discarded and realistic life-size doll.’
Some speculated the sex doll had been placed in the woods as a practical joke.
