NEW YORK (AP) — Horror and alarm over the discovery of what appeared to be the body of a dead baby at a New York City park turned to relief, and probably some embarrassment, Tuesday when the blue-skinned corpse was later revealed to be a realistic-looking doll.
Police and paramedics rushed to Crocheron Park in the Bayside neighborhood of Queens at around 7:40 a.m. after a woman out for a morning jog found the “baby” lying face-down in the grass.
The article goes on to state the following:
Detectives descended on the park in droves to look for evidence. A crime scene tent was set up. Yellow tape blocked off the area where the discovery was made.
Police thought they’d found a three-month-old that was dead at the scene, but they soon observed a T-shirt that read, “the crawling dead” and determined that they were looking at a doll or theatrical prop. It’s skin that was likely “purposely colored to resemble decomposing” flesh, according to the AP.
Pictures of the doll (below) may be disturbing to some. Discretion advised.
