An Australian man erroneously reported a homicide to police after he discovered a round blob, which he believed was a breast implant and evidence of a murder.

The blob turned out to be natural, not man-made — it was a jellyfish.

The clearly confused man handed over the piece of possible evidence to officers at a police station in Maroochydore, Queensland, “much to their initial alarm,” according to a press release.

“The man was concerned it was a prosthetic implant from someone who may have been murdered or drowned,” the release said. “Investigations revealed what police suspected ... the item was indeed a jellyfish!”

And with that, cops closed the book on any foul play.
