Ghostbusters star Dan Aykroyd was briefly at the centre of a police investigation in Calgary, Canada earlier this week (beg27May13) after murderous footage of his 1990 film flop Loose Cannons was unearthed at a landfill site.

A worker, who stumbled upon the images of Aykroyd standing over a bloody corpse, failed to recognise the actor and thought he had found evidence of a sickening crime.

He handed his find over to local police officers who quickly realised they were just looking at scenes from a forgotten film.

Aykroyd tells he's not surprised the film clip stumped the police, stating, "The movie should have been left in the landfill where it belongs."
