Japanese Investigators mistaken sex doll as corpse
Police in Izu responded to a report of a possible corpse in the woods by dispatching an investigation team. Details after the jump
Fifteen officers were dispatched to the scene, where they discovered a human form wrapped in plastic and tightly bound around the neck, midriff and ankles, with hair protruding from one end.
The body was left untouched and taken away for examination, and the crime scene duly secured by a police line.
Dozens of extra officers were dispatched to interview potential witnesses, while the evening edition of the local newspaper carried a report of the gruesome find, complete with a photograph of the crime scene.
By mid-afternoon, the body was in the hands of police pathologists. But when they sliced open the wrapping, they were confronted not by a decomposing corpse, but by a life-sized sex doll.
