Shepherd died 'while having sex with scarecrow dressed in wig and lipstick'
An Argentinian shepherd has died while having sex with a scarecrow that was dressed with lipstick, wig and a strap-on sex toy.
The remains of Jose Alberto, 58, were discovered after neighbours called the council to report a smell coming from his house in San Jose de Balcare in eastern Argentina.
Police spokesman Rodolfo Moure said: "I initially thought there were two bodies but then I realised one was a scarecrow wearing lipstick and a long-haired wig. It was lying next to the deceased and had a six-inch strap-on penis.
"There were no signs of violence and we are working on the assumption that the man died during sex with the scarecrow. Straw had been stuffed inside the old clothes that had been sewn together to make the scarecrow.
"We are now waiting the results of an autopsy.”
Neighbours said he lived alone and was described as "very lonely" man who had few visitors.
