Unlike in the 1987 movie by the same name, this life-sized doll didn’t come to life.
But a mannequin posed under a tarp in Manning Park does have RCMP scratching their collective heads.
On July 10, Princeton RCMP responded to a report of a possible human body laying
underneath a tarp near a pullout on Hwy. 3, reported Cst. James Grandy, the Penticton detachment’s Media Relations Officer.
“(An) officer arrived and found what appeared to be a life-sized mannequin laying underneath a blue tarp,” he explained. “The lower legs had been removed, along with the head. Metal joints were visible, and it was immediately confirmed to be a plastic doll.”
The officer located several other plastic “body parts” when he searched the immediate area.
The mannequin was taken into custody by RCMP, which is now looking for a motive for the bizarre incident.
Princeton RCMP are so perplexed they’re asking for the public’s help. Anyone who has any information about the incident is asked to call the detachment at 250- 295-6911.
