I found a ‘body’ stuffed under a bush in the woods – only for police to discover it was a dumped sex doll 0 81

A FAMILY phoned the police in terror after finding a suspected murder victim in the woods – only to realise it was an abandoned sex doll.

Vikram Dawson, 36, had stopped driving to have a wee when he came running back to the car in shock after spotting a naked body face-down.

He urged wife Shriya Vikram to call 999 to report someone had been killed and thrown in the bushes near St Neot, Cornwall.

Teaching assistant Shriya, 33, also went to have a peek of the bare leg sticking out the shrubbery herself before darting back to safety.

She said: “My husband came back from watering the plants and I had never seen him so pale or scared. I couldn’t believe what he was saying.

“He got us all in the car and locked all the doors before telling the police what he saw.

“Vikram really believed someone had been murdered and their body had been dumped in the woods.

“He had seen someone lying motionless, naked and face-down in a bush.

“The officer on the end of the phone was taking it very seriously. We were told to stay there to give a witness statement.”

BODY BAG AT THE READY

As the family waited, a “very suspicious” bald man with neck tattoos slowly drove past before returning again 15 minutes later.

It caused petrified project manager Vikram, 36,  to speed away in his Skoda.

But paramedics called asking whether there was any blood – before attending police demanded to know where the family had fled to.

They returned to two cop cars and three officers cordoning off the crime scene.

Then they went to pick the body up and felt it was a bit light. It turned out to be a pale rubber sex doll. I think I saw breasts.

Shriya Vikram

Shriya said: “The area was all taped off. It all seemed so real like in the films.

“Then they went to pick the body up and felt it was a bit light. It turned out to be a pale rubber sex doll. I think I saw breasts.

“It must have been someone playing a prank with a naked mannequin or discarding it as it was no longer wanted.

“Police even had a body bag ready and used it to take it away. They were brilliant to be fair and that was the decent and proper thing to do to protect its modesty.

“They actually said you’d be surprised how often this happens but this one did look very real.”

Shriya’s Indian mother-in-law Kriti, 66, was beside herself while the couple’s two young daughters Sasha, five, and Maya, two, were buzzing with excitement.

They were making the morning drive home to Romsey, Hampshire after spending a weekend’s holiday in Cornwall last month.

A spokesperson from Devon and Cornwall Police said: “We were called just before midday on Monday 11 April with reports of a body being located in the undergrowth a few miles past Liskeard.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 40

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

I’m a mess and need to start getting a grip for the kids’ sake.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
