Earlier this year in September, a strange crime was committed in Izu, Japan, that shocked the authorities and media around the world.
A 60 year-old man, having lost his wife a few years ago, had been having a relationship with his girlfriend for some time. Having decided that he would move into one of his kid’s homes, he decided she would have to go.
“He was confused about how to get rid of her. He thought it would be cruel to cut her up into pieces and throw her out with the trash, so he proceeded to dump her” said the lead investigator.
The confused man decided to tie and wrap his girlfriend in a sleeping bag and dumped her corpse in a remote wooded area.
A few weeks later, a couple who was walking their dog, discovered the corpse and call the police.
A criminal investigation was immediately launched, but it was not until a few hours later when the forensic team finally started to unwrap and investigate the corpse, that the biggest shock was revealed.
The corpse was actually a life-size silicone sex doll.
Furious and convinced that someone was playing a joke on them, the authorities vowed to find the person responsible and charge them with interfering with a police investigation.
After seeing the news story about his girlfriend, the old man immediately called the police to explain to them what happened.
Even though the old man apologized for the trouble he caused, he still may face fines for violating Japan’s Waste Management Laws.
