Dead body mistaken for mannequin brought to the dump

By Owen Weldon     Jul 18, 2014 in Odd News
Two men who were hired to clean out a rental home in Florida thought they found a mannequin hanging in the garage, so they brought it to a landfill. The "mannequin" ended up being a 'mummified' man.
According to Yahoo, the body was hanging in the garage, and the men thought it was a Halloween-style prank.
Worker at the west-central Florida dump smelt a foul odor on Thursday and called the authorities. The authorities determined that the 'mannequin' was a dead man in a "mummified state."
According to First Coast News, police said it appeared that the 33-year-old man committed suicide weeks ago.
According to NBC, there was plenty of rodents and trash in the home, and the workers thought that was causing the bad smell.
The medical examiner is now trying to figure out just how long ago the man died.
