Police: Body found by railroad tracks was sex doll

ALLENHURST, Ga. — Call it a case of mistaken identity. But an eastern Georgia sheriff’s detective said he had never seen anything like it before.

A body found by the side of railroad tracks on Tuesday was actually a sex doll, WSAV reported, and authorities believe they might have been set up by a prankster.

Liberty County Sheriff Detective Mike Albritton said officers found the body in Allenhurst at about 2 p.m., the television station reported.

Adhering to a policy that prevents law enforcement officers from touching a deceased person until a coroner arrives, the officers placed a sheet over the body and waited, WSAV reported.

When the coroner arrived, detectives began checking for injuries and realized the body was a female sex doll, the television station reported. The doll was fully dressed and appeared to be anatomically correct officials said.

The investigation was quickly called off, authorities said.
