The website Post Secret, described as "an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard," gained significant popularity when a postcard was posted with what appeared as a confession of a murder and the body's location.
The postcard in question appeared as the top image Sunday and showed what appeared to be an aerial map of a park. A Post-It style note attached to the image read, "I said she dumped me, but really I dumped her (body)," with a red arrow pointing to a particular spot.
Eagle-eyed users of the website Reddit helped identify the exact location on the postcard as Chicago's Jackson Park, and the post quickly spread across social media. It also caught the attention of the Chicago Police.
"We basically had a cryptic message observed on the site pertaining to a possible criminal act," Officer John Mirabelli told CNN Monday. "Officers immediately went to the park and conducted a search. There was no evidence of a crime or anything that was unusual."
Police detectives will continue to investigate, "but nothing has surfaced to indicate that a crime was committed," Mirabelli said.
