Man Who Tried To Have Sex With Mailbox Found Dead

An English man who admitted he tried to have sex with a mailbox was found dead on Sunday.

Last month, Paul Bennett, 45, pleaded guilty to o two counts of indecent exposure and using threatening and abusive words with abusive behavior.

Bennett was found dead behind the Shanghai Palace Chinese restaurant in Wigan, Greater Manchester, on Sunday, the Wigan Observer reports.

Police are investigating the cause of death, but they do not think it was "suspicious," according to the Observer.

The plea stemmed from a Sept. 9, 2014 incident in which Bennett attempted to have sex with a mailbox in a public area.

Witnesses told the court they saw Bennett pull down his pants in a shopping arcade and start to publicly perform a sexual act on himself in public.

Prosecuting attorney Kate Beattie said Bennett then walked over to the postbox and "started to make sexual advances towards it," according to the Mirror.
