Horrifying Halloween Decorations Terrify Neighborhood, Prompt 911 Call
Johnnie Mullins' neighbors love Halloween as much as the next heathen, but they think his decorations this year crossed the line from fun-scary to scary-call-the-cops-there's-a-dead-body-in-our-neighbor's-driveway.
"Just trying to scare people, that's what I like to do," Mullins, of Mustang, Oklahoma, told News9 in defense of his "Halloween prank": Two fake bodies that appear to have met a bloody demise outside his house.
"My heart about came out of my chest. I thought ‘Oh my God,'" said neighbor Rebecca Fuentes. "If I think it's real, just think of what a child would think?"
The children "don't freak out or anything," Mullins insists, but it seems the adults are freaking out enough for everyone.
One neighbor was apparently so persuaded by how lifelike the dead bodies look that they dialed 911.
But Mullins said the police officers and firefighters who responded to the call were nice about it and told him he wasn't doing anything illegal.
"It's Halloween. I don't think it's too far," said Mullins, who has since added another body to his display.
