When blood may have been a red drink

THE MYSTERY of a ‘bloodstained’ baseball bat on a footpath near Horsham is now a closed incident according to police.

A member of the public found the bat with blood on it and immediately around it.

However, the ‘blood’ may be just from a can of red drink.

A police spokesman added the slightly disconcerting alternative answer for animal lovers: “There have been occasions in the past where someone has run over an animal and used something to finish the job.”
