The incidenthappened on July 23, when a team of firefighters in Sherbrooke, Quebec, were responding to a report of a mannequin that had caught fire. They found what they thought was a silicon dummy in a wooded area."When they arrived, witnesses declared that someone had lit a silicone mannequin on fire," said Sherbrooke police chief Danny McConnell to Canadian news outlet headtopics.com
CBC Canada.McConnell said that the fire and police departments decided that the mannequin should be disposed of in a container at the Sherbrooke police department. But they received a call four hours later at around 2.15 p.m., from a man who said that his partner was missing.
The police officers then tracked the missing woman's cellphone signal to her car, which was parked near the site of the fire. McConnell told the press that the body was then retrieved from the container and identified."We are obviously sorry about this situation, and rest assured the family is being advised about every key detail of this investigation," McConnell said. "Our hearts are with the family, her partner, and the kids in this very tragic situation."
CBC Canada spoke to Robert Nicholson, an anatomical pathologist at the Granby Hospital in the Eastern Townships, who said it was not "unreasonable" for someone to mistake a burned person for a singed mannequin. He explained that this is because severely burned people lose all the water contained in their bodies.
