Fungus Leads Police to Suspect Foul Play

August 16, 2005  | 

The strong smell of a large fungus caused German law enforcement officers to search for a dead body.

After several people in Dresden, Germany, complained to police of a horrible smell, five officers and a K-9 investigated in a nearby forest, expecting the worst.

What they found was an unusually large “stinkhorn.” German media reported the fungus was more than 20cm long. Police called off the search.
