SAN JOSE de BALCARE, Argentina — Neighbors first reported a foul smell coming from the home of Jose Alberto. When officers arrived, they found Alberto lying dead on the floor next to a scarecrow outfitted with red lipstick and a sex toy.

“I initially thought there were two bodies, but then I realised one was a scarecrow wearing lipstick and a long-haired wig,” prosecuting assistant Rodolfo Moure told The Mirror.

“Straw had been stuffed inside the old clothes that had been sewn together to make the scarecrow,” he continued.

The life-size figure was also adorned with a wig.

Moure confirmed there were “no signs of violence, and we are working on the assumption that the man died during sex with the scarecrow.”

Neighbors say Alberto lived by himself and didn’t own a cell phone.

“We are now waiting the results of an autopsy,” Moury concluded.
