Hanging Body Mistaken for Halloween Decoration

 

For hours, the hanging body of an apparent suicide went unreported by passers-by in Frederica, Del. Authorities were called to the scene over three hours after the body was first observed.

The victim was a 42-year-old woman who used rope to hang herself about 15 feet in the air. The suicide was right across from a busy road and houses, and could be easily seen from passing vehicles.

Police spokesman Cpl. Jeff Oldham said people noticed the body early Wednesday morning, but dismissed it as a Halloween decoration.

  Something similiar  
 
I think it was a year or 2 ago that something similiar happened. I think it was a guy's body hanging from a public building but it was days before anyone noticed that it was a real body.

  LOL  
 
I've heard of people going all out for Halloween. Maybe giving an arm and a leg to buy decorations, but actually killing yourself! Ultimate Halloween decoration! Hardcore.

  Some guy  
 
hung for about a year once, he was in a library in japan I think, and they closed the wing he hung himself in.

Anyway, this is actualy quite disturbing, were all laughing our arses off at it.
