You just can’t make this stuff up. The above skeleton was placed in the water a day before a Halloween party. Folks walk on the bridge at night and shine flashlights into the water. It is made out of concrete and looks nothing like a skeleton. The party went on and was a success. No one tried jumping into the water to safe the skeleton.
Well, it all started a couple days after the party. One afternoon the Madison County Sheriff showed up. She had also brought the coroner. She explained to us what they were there for. They are looking for a dead body. It seems while the mock skeleton was in the water someone walked upon the bridge, saw the head and hands, so immediately took a picture. They then posted the photo on FB, where someone circled the skeleton and said they needed to contact authorities immediately.
Meanwhile three days have transpired from the time the picture was taken to contacting the authorities. Problem number one, someone had already stolen the head. Then problem number 2, there was heavy rain that caused the river to rise, and you couldn’t see the hands. They got someone to wade in and look for the hands. “Mission Accomplished.” They were now in possession of two concrete hands, remember someone had already stolen the head.
Before they left, we had great conversation and the case of the dead body, had been solved. All of this over something that looked nothing like a real skeleton, or so I thought, but someone thought differently. As far as the case of the missing head, it still has not been found.
