Eww: "Mannequin" Was Dead Body

In the EWWWW!!!  department today, we have news of a couple Florida guys who were cleaning out a house who cut down a mannequin hanging in a garage and brought it to the dump.  
The house garage in Spring Hill, Florida in
which a "fake mummy" cleaners removed
was a real, and dead, human body.  

The problem was, the "mannequin" was actually a real human body. A real dead one, says the AP.

Police said the body was that of a 33-year old Spring Hill, Florida man who had committed suicide a few weeks ago.

Police said the body was in a "state of decomposition similar to mummification."

Israel Lopez and Adam Hines, the guys who took the body to the landfill, had thought the former renters in the house had played a Halloween-type hoax on them.

The two guys aren't facing any charges, but I bet they are SO, SO freaked out.  The pair have so far not offered any comment. None needed, really.

Incredibly, this is the second time in the past several months that a dead body in Florida was mistaken for a mannequin, according to the AP:

"In St. Petersburg, the body of a 96-year-old woman who jumped to her death was mistaken for an April Fool's prank and thrown in an apartment complex Dumpster. The overnight clerk who removed the body was fired," says the AP.

So if you're ever in Florida and think you see a fake stunt mummy, don't touch, please. You might get more than you bargained for.
