Mannequin, not human body, discovered in Edmonton's Queen Alexandra neighbourhood

A large police presence in Edmonton’s Queen Alexandra neighbourhood on Monday afternoon turned out to be for a mannequin.

The alley between University Avenue and 78 Avenue on 108 Street was blocked off with police tape Monday, with at least six cruisers on site.

An area resident told 630 CHED on Monday that an officer came to her door looking for information as part of a suspicious death investigation.

On Tuesday morning, Edmonton police confirmed a human body was not discovered.

“It is believed to be some sort of mannequin or doll,” EPS spokesperson Scott Pattison said in an email.

Pattison said it’s the nature of police work, you “don’t know what you have until you look.”
