A man in Argentina was found dead in his home after having intercourse with a scarecrow that he had dressed up as a woman.
Authorities have said that 58-year-old Jose Alberto was found dead in his home in San Jose de Balcare, Argentina. He was lying beside a scarecrow (straw doll) that was dressed up in women’s clothes, had on a wig, and also had on lipstick, per Fox 8.
“There were no signs of violence, and we were working on the assumption that the man died during sex with the scarecrow,” said police spokesman Rodolfo Moure. “I initially thought there were two bodies but then I realized one was a scarecrow wearing lipstick and a long-haired wig.”
Neighbors first noticed a foul smell coming from the building in which Alberto lived. A few of them entered the home and found the decomposing body of shepherd Jose Alberto laying on the floor.
Right next to him was the scarecrow which was dressed as a woman, but it did have a prosthetic sex toy on it. There were no signs of violence.
Neighbors did say that Alberto was a loner and had no mobile phone so that is probably why they hadn’t noticed his dead body for a number of days, per the Irish Mirror.
The police stated that some old clothes had straw stuffed and packed tightly into them and then the clothing was sewn together. The clothing and straw made a scarecrow, but there was no word from neighbors as to whether or not the scarecrow was ever out in Alberto’s yard.
Police are currently awaiting autopsy results before determining the exact cause of death.
It truly is quite amazing what some people will do with inanimate objects such as the New York man who built a wooden dummy and sat it in his passenger seat to use the carpool lane. The man had been busted on a number of occasions, but said he was still going to keep using the dummy.
A few tickets didn’t stop the man from using the dummy in his car so he could use the carpool lane, but that’s the price you have to pay.
As for the Jose Alberto, the man who died while having sex with a scarecrow? It’s a sad and tragic tale that may be a bit weird, but isn’t any less upsetting. Police have made no mention of any family that he may have had.
