I post this with some trepidation, but some of the text in the body of the article is so humourous that I thought the Board may get a few laughs.
Further, it is the most read article on mlive today. Of particular note, the object of the attention became somewhat of a local celebrity after the original article went viral. Local band Black Jake and The Carnies wrote a song about the mystery pooper, a fake mystery pooper account popped up on Twitter and a billboard requesting residents "Do your civic doody” and "Help us catch the 'poopetrator'” appeared on Interstate 94.
Unfortunately, the police did not identify this new local celebrity, who apparently resides in a local halfway house. Thankfully, he was apprehended before warm weather would allow kids to play in the area.
