Dead body in Google Street View!?

Here’s something you don’t see every day!

I was checking Google Maps a few minutes ago for the quickest cycle route home. I switched to Street View so that cycle lanes would be more visible and look what I found! Is it or is it not a dead body?! I’d hope not… I tried different views and angles but this seems to be the best [N.B. I'm not the morbid type but, come on, how often do you find something like this in... Google Maps???].

What do you think? Another Google blooper? Perhaps I shouldn’t be cycling down that route, uh?

PS: the street is Gray’s Inn Road, if you’re curious (not morbid!). I can even give you the coordinates: 51.5267, -0.1180 !
