Don't worry, people. That's not a dead baby in that garbage can; it's just a bag of coconuts.
That's what police are saying after a woman called in to report a baby's body in a trash can in a Southwest Side alley. Officers showed up to investigate the find in the 5200 block of South Kostner around 9:20 a.m. Sunday.
After some investigation, police realized it wasn't a baby after all, but probably the remnants of a Halloween prank -- and what looked like the fuzzy head of an infant was, in fact, a fuzzy coconut.
Police said they aren't yet sure if the woman was confused by what she saw, or was trying to trick police.
