On Friday, police responded to reports of a “deceased female” discovered face down on a hiking route south of Atlanta. Also, the cops were startled to learn the “corpse” was a life-sized mannequin abandoned by an unknown litterbug.
Also, the Jones County Sheriff’s Office posted the tale on Facebook over the weekend, along with photos of the plastic “victim,” now dubbed “Selena.”
Especially, our detectives were called to a route where a corpse was thought to be found in the Hitchiti National Forest. “The first arriving deputies spotted a deceased female wearing white socks.”
In the first shot, Selena the doll was smeared in the muck and left behind trees.
According to the Facebook post, “our crack team of detectives instantly identified the corpse as a life-sized mannequin, replete with accessories.”
Especially, the crime scene was always properly handled, and the evidence was gathered and transported to the Sheriff’s Office.
Officers “rescued” the damaged doll, which was subsequently photographed on a truck’s tray.
They wrote: “The victim, now called Selena, is a bit under the weather, but she has been enjoying a good day and is expected to make a complete recovery.”
“In all seriousness, thank God for minor blessings,” they continued. “If you know Selena or are in charge of her location, you are safe. But please dispose of your belongings responsibly in the future.”
And, the Facebook post immediately gained over 38,000 likes, with more comments underneath.
“Hope it wasn’t a test! Someone speculated that there might be a future murderer in the region.
Also, others were amused by the story, asking how the cop realized it was a filthy doll straight away.
“Deputy Dennis ‘quickly’ identified the body?” the user wrote.
A few joked that the police who brought the lovely doll in would spoil her, while others claimed the story brightened their day.
“With all the chaos in the world, thank you very much! “I needed this!” they said.
