Cops Flush Out 'Mystery Pooper' After 'Weird And Deliberate' Defecations On Park Slide


Police in Michigan have successfully deterred the infamous "mystery pooper" from defecating on a park slide.

Ypsilanti Police made contact with the unidentified suspect following a streak of what officials called "weird and deliberate" defecations on the same playground slide between November 2013 and April 2014.

The individual's identity has not been revealed, and no charges have been filed. Police said the suspect is a resident of a halfway house near Ypsilanti's Prospect Park.

Police said no additional defecations have occurred since they made contact.

"This whole saga has generated a lot interest in Prospect Park from around the country. It's great that the police were able to put a stop to this just as the weather warmed up," city council member Brian Robb told Michigan Live.

Earlier this year, a digital billboard and social media campaign were launched to help "flush out" the Mystery Pooper. Naturally, some people made jokes about it.

But residents and the park employees tasked with wiping down the slide say they're just glad to put the incident behind them.
