Sheriff’s officials: ‘Fetus’ found in trash bin is actually a doll

Local News

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — In a bizarre twist, the object found in a trash container earlier this week that was believed to be a human fetus was in fact a doll that had been altered so it had the appearance of a “small fetus,” a sheriff’s spokeperson said Thursday afternoon.

The doll was found in an Oildale trash bin Monday, resulting in homicide detectives being called to the scene for what was believed to be a disposed of fetus.

But earlier Thursday, a coroner’s release said the “fetus” had been determined to be “non-human.” The release provided no further information.

When 17 News called for more details, a spokesperson clarified that the item was a doll, a prop changed to resemble a fetus.
