Bollinger County Sheriff’s office responded to a 911 call Thursday evening of a possible human body near Bollinger County Road 872. North Bollinger County Fire Protection District first responders, Bollinger County EMS and deputies with the Bollinger County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the location, only to find that the “human body” was not that at all. Upon arrival, officials located a large piece of plastic wrapped with duct tape in a ditch off the side of the road. Inside, someone stuffed clothes with trash and placed the clothes into the wrap of plastic so it’d appear as though it was a human body. A photo taken by the sheriff’s office showed a pair of worn boots at the end of stuffed coveralls wrapped in a black plastic covering. Officials immediately confirmed it was not a human body, “but was rather a disturbing and unnecessary prank.” Bollinger County Sheriff Casey Graham said he does not believe the 911 call was made by whoever placed the fake body. Whoever did make the fake body could face criminal charges by the Bollinger County Prosecuting Office. Bollinger County Sheriff’s Office asks for anyone with information pertinent to the prank to contact the office at (573) 238-2633. You can learn more in the Southeast Missourian.
