Police in Mérida were placed on high alert after being notified that a dead body had been found wrapped in plastic bags.

However, what authorities found was much less macabre, an inflatable sex doll. 

The area was cordoned off and authorities deployed a large team which included a helicopter, investigative agents and forensic analysts to the “crime scene.” 

The suspense ended when forensic analysts made an incision to the plastic bag and discovered and inflatable sex doll stuffed inside. 

According to police sources, the sex doll had been left behind by people who had previously been living in the house across from the spot where the discovery was made. 

It is unclear if the incident was the result of an honest mistake resulting from the disposal of the inflatable doll, or a Valentines’ Day prank that went too far.
