Man Dresses Shaved St Bernhard In His Clothes To Fake Car Accident

Man Dresses Shaved St Bernhard In His Clothes To Fake Car Accident

Police in China are investigating the curious incident of the dog in the daytime where a fraudster used a dead mutt's body to try to fake his own death in a road crash.

Officers say the dead dog was all part of the scam by Ho Li to fake his death and escape to a new life with his lover.

It happened in Zhaoxian township in Shandong province in east China. According to local officials, 44-year-old Li bought a large St Bernhard dog that was on sale at a local market, killed and shaved the creature and then wrapped the carcass, minus its paws and head, in his own clothes.

In the clothes he buried his ID papers and wallet - including cash - and placed the canine corpse on a road. It was, as he hoped, hit by several passing vehicles including a lorry, and badly mutilated.

Astonishingly, at first, police called to the scene believed they had discovered the badly smashed up corpse of a man.

But when the cadaver was taken to a morgue a pathologist immediately saw that they had been duped, and the hunt was then on for the real Li.

"Police found the man Li had complex relationship with women and suspected that the accident was a murder at first," said a spokesman. "However, when the body was checked it was discovered that the body was that of a dog and not a man."

Four days after the accident, police discovered that Li was opening a bank account in the locality, rushed there in time, and arrested him.

According to Li, who was married, he had a lover who was pregnant.

"He was too scared to admit he wanted to leave, so instead of breaking away from his family and live with his lover, he tried to fake his own death," said police.
