SUGARLOAF KEY, Fla. (AP) - A reported "mummified" body on an abandoned boat in the Florida Keys turned out to be a mannequin.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says a young couple spotted what they thought was a dead body in an abandoned boat off Sugarloaf Key on Saturday night. They said it appeared to be mummified.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission sent a boat to transport deputies to the scene. They found only a mannequin on the boat, no human remains.
