Lonely 58-Year-Old Man Found Dead Next To His Scarecrow 'Lover'

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueR.I.P.Sad SadSex

There are a lot of questions surrounding Jose Alberto Lescano's death.

This is a very sad story with an incredibly strange twist to it.

58-year-old José Alberto Lescano was found dead in his home in Balcarce, Argentina on Tuesday, but investigators quickly discovered that he was not alone.

In fact, he was in bed with a scarecrow that was outfitted with lipstick, a wig, and a 6-inch plastic tube, leading investigators to believe it was used as a sex toy.

An autopsy revealed that José died of nontraumatic cardiac arrest and there was no sign of blood or injury at the scene. It's believed his body was laying there for 24 to 48 hours before he was eventually discovered.

Although it has yet to be confirmed, the presence of the scarecrow has led some to speculate that he died while playing a "sex game" with it.

Witnesses described the 58-year-old as a quiet man who lived alone in his rural home and rarely had visitors. There is currently no foul play suspected in his death.
