A jogger in New York could not have expected nor wished to see as much of the mad and macabre as she saw recently while on a run. Could the Sawyer clan have moved up to the Big Apple? Read on for a truly weird story!
NBC LA reported on a rather interesting story: Police launched an unusual investigation after one runner made a surprising, creepy discovery while on a jog in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Wednesday, August 6th.
The jogger, Kate Steciw, found what appeared to be a human skeleton wearing a Brooklyn Nets hat, a T-shirt, goggles, and sweatpants standing up on display behind a wrought iron fence near a path in the southeastern portion of the park, near Ocean Avenue. Filling out the tableau were four paintings of flowers arranged in the foreground and an American flag hanging from the trees behind.
Police removed the skeleton on Wednesday and on Thursday determined that it was a plastic prop. But the twisted scene still gave residents pause.
“I took a picture of it, and then I got a queasy feeling because it looked so, so real,” said Steciw, who then called the police but had a hard time getting her point across. “I was trying to explain to them that it was a skeleton standing upright, dressed in clothes with objects arranged around it.”
