You'd think the weight or smell would've tipped them off

Police and fire crews in Canada apologized after they mistook the burnt corpse of a missing woman for a mannequin, and threw it in a dumpster. 

Speaking to reporters Thursday, Danny McConnell, chief of police in Sherbrooke, a city in Quebec, explained that firefighters had responded to a report of a brush fire behind a baking factory on Cabana Street, at around 10am last Friday. 

When firefighters got to the scene, witnesses told them that they believed someone had burnt a silicone mannequin behind the factory.

    1. There's nothing wrong with laughing at the results of some event you personally have no control over no matter how emotionally disturbing. It's a psychological catharsis process. I got that advice from Dr. Frasier Crane.

  2. There's no mistaking the smell of burning human. Even if you've never smelled it before.

  3. Silicone manequin = sex doll.
    They are heavier than an average person so the weight wouldn't have been a tip off.
