Police called to investigate “dead body” turned out to be a wax doll

April Fool's came a tad too early.

SHAH ALAM – A waste management worker had the shock of his life when he stumbled upon a package shaped like a human and tightly wrapped in plastic at Section 27 here yesterday (Feb 9), thinking that it was a dead body.

After alerting the police, dozens of officers were deployed to the scene and cordoned off the area.

However, to their immense surprise, the “dead body” was actually a female-shaped wax doll which had been disposed alongside the trash.

Shah Alam police chief Baharudin Mat Taib told FMT that police had received a call from the worker at 3 pm and immediately dispatched the forensic team for further investigation.

“The case has now been classified as No Offence Disclosed (NOD) and we urge the public not to speculate on the photos that have been shared on social media,” he said.

Another netizen even went as far as to suggest that the police were scammed by the wax toy as a “punishment’ for not assisting scam victims.
