Bone Hoax
Crawford County police were alarmed when they discovered leg bones sticking out of a pair of work boots that were standing on the bank of Lake Shepherd Springs in Arkansas. They launched a massive investigation, until they realized the bones came from an animal. They warn that whoever is responsible for the hoax will be prosecuted for committing a crime.

Surely Sheriff's Investigator Beshears was committing a hoax himself by suggesting those responsible will be charged and prosecuted for committing a crime.
