3 years ago in when I was living in Tampa, I remember a family had a huge Halloween display in their front yard and the fake dead body on the front lawn look so real, that the police made them take it out because of so many calls thinking someone was murdered.

Michigan Does Some Scary Stuff

Well, check this out from USA Today and A Michigan woman got real scary and daring this year with Halloween, so much so that 911 calls were coming in and a few visits from police.

Detroiter LaRethia Haddon isn’t alone in her love of freaking out her neighbors and passersby. According to the report, there are fright lovers like her around the country with Halloween decorations ranging from “fresh blood” to a fake house fire to a “decapitated man.” In Haddon’s case, for 25 years she has decorated her lawn with a dummy resembling a dead body and moves it to a new spot every day.

We live in a great state and word has it that Michigan is among the most haunted states, and Mackinac Island is the nation's most visited town per capita for Halloween.
