Man Charged With Dumping Silicone Girlfriend

A man in Japan has been charged with dumping his silicone 'girlfriend'. On August 21st, the 60-year-old man wrapped the 1.7m, 50kg doll in a sleeping back and drove it to a wooded area and dumped her. Two weeks later, a couple called the police after discovering what they thought was a dead body. The body had been wrapped in a bag and bound around the neck, waist and ankles. A head of black hair protruded from one end of the bag. Forensic pathologists soon discovered that the corpse was actually a lifelike doll. The incident quickly spread to national and international newspapers and on September 6th the man contacted police. It was revealed that the man had lived with the doll for many years after his wife had passed away but decided to get rid of it after making plans to move in with one of his children. According to police:

“It seems he grew attached to the doll over the years,” said the chief investigator. “He was confused about how to get rid of her. He thought it would be cruel to cut her up into pieces and throw her out with the trash, so he proceeded to dump her illegally.”

The man now faces fines for violating Japan’s Waste Management Law. [via]
