A woman who walked through Wal-Mart naked had been released from a local psychiatric ward hours before the incident, according to the Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana, Sheriff’s Office.
Employees called a deputy just before 6 p.m. to report the 24-year-old, who was walking completely unclothed in the Martin Luther King Boulevard store’s food section, said Maj. Malcolm Wolfe, a Sheriff’s Office spokesman. When the deputy asked her why she was naked, she replied, “God wanted me to show the world what I really look like,” according to the deputy’s report.
The deputy handcuffed the woman and covered her with a blanket. She was returned to the psychiatric ward at Leonard J. Chabert Medical Center, where she had been released two hours before, Wolfe said.
The report does not indicate how she arrived at the store or when she undressed. No charges were filed.
