The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is investigating Saturday after a mannequin was found hanging from the Interstate 95 overpass near the Zoo Parkway exit in a New York Police Department Uniform and a pig mask.

Around 6:20 a.m. officers responded to a call about a potential suicide by hanging on the overpass. At the scene, officers determined that it was a mannequin dressed in an NYPD uniform with a pig mask, officers said.

First Coast News also learned that the mannequin had the letters “KKK” written on it, according to the sheriff’s office.

The mannequin was taken down and is being processed as evidence by crime scene detectives to determine a potential person(s) of interest, police said.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call JSO at 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS to remain anonymous.
