Who has been defecating on children's slides in Ypsilantis Prospect Park for the past five to six months?
Ypsilanti police and city officials are hunting for the person officials have described as the mystery pooper as warmer weather approaches.
Officials have discovered feces on the slides so frequently that police installed a hidden camera to try to capture an image of the act.
Council Member Pete Murdock, who is also the head of the Friends of Prospect Park, described the act as weird and deliberate. He said he first received a call about the issue more than five months ago and the culprit struck as recently as early March.
Department of Public Works employees are supposed to be checking the slides daily and cleaning up any human waste, Murdock said, and the suspect appears to be using the slide only at night.
In January, Ypsilanti police Chief Tony DeGiusti sent a communication out to YPD officers about the incidents.
We have a problem in Prospect Park with a miscreant that does not understand the difference between a childrens playground slide and a toilet, the email stated. Apparently this extremely misguided individual feels the need to defecate on the slide despite the cold weather. This has been an ongoing problem at this location. Please make frequent checks in the area and record them on your daily log.
DeGiusti did not return calls from The Ann Arbor News and City Manager Ralph Lange declined to comment.
We most definitely need to get this under control before school (recess) and park season starts, Murdock said. Its hard to deal with because its so unbelievable to begin with. When somebody called me and told me what happened I said What? You gotta be kidding me!
Murdock said the Friends of the Prospect Park may stake out the park as temperatures warm and the nights grow shorter.
He said he has encouraged staff and residents to contact him every time defecation is discovered so he can determine if theres a pattern in regards to a schedule.
We need to get him or her and get them the help they need, Murdock said.
The country continues to put up with all kinds of crap.
I sure hope that they don’t fine grain in the stool deposits. That would make him a cereal pooper.
On a case like this, the crime lab guys really need to know their poop.
Just look for the guy with chapped cheeks. Its been one seriously cold winter.
This is what happens when you eat too many Sliders.
OUCH! Im thinking its some dumb schmuck deposting dog waste on those slides.
Of course ypsilanti does have a large state mental hospital but I doubt that the residents get unaccompanied nights out.
Occupy Ann Arbor works!
Why the slide? Don’t they know it rolls down hill all by itself?
Didn’t obama have a Reuben sandwich there recently?
It’s the Butt-ler.
A slider is a small sandwich, typically around 3 in (7.6 cm) across, served in a bun. The term primarily refers to small hamburgers, but can also cover any small sandwich served on a slider roll.The term, when used in reference to a small hamburger, refers to a small hamburger patty served on a small bun.
What does he think that park is? The Ypsi Pee and Poo?
They called in a sketch artist for the Yipsi “hate crime” attack......
Or a White Castle, which could be the real culprit here.
Imagine the size and consistancy of the turds left after the perp downing a couple Quints with egg from Blimpieburger.
