    Hmm, that is really quite disturbing as EricNau said. How is it possible to mistake a body from decorations, especially if the corpse isn't that old... ?

    Yikes, that's just tragic. You would think someone would have been playing closer attention, but I guess with it being Hallowe'en and all. That, and people tend to be indifferent and lazy at times... :eek: ;)

    For a part, that is slightly hilarious. Yes my dark sardistic mind finds it funny. But it is quite sad at the same time.

    "It looked like something somebody would have rigged up," she said.

    Well, she was right, wasn't she?

    I have to admit I find the concept, if not the actual event, quite funny. Call me sick. :eek:

    Its like with bonfire night in the UK, you could easily shoot someone and the rest of the world would mistake it for another firework in the distance.

    i'm more a crossbow person myself

    Wow. I guess things like this should be expected though. It is tragic though.

    Its happened before. Its a reasonably common occurrence in haunted houses put on by amateurs. They do a fake hanged body and then don't get the safety harness right and the person actually hangs.

    Imagine if she hung herself because nobody cared about her and she didn't get enough attention, and then she hangs herself and people STILL ignore her. :eek:

    Funny, no?

    It's more possible than if the corpse was getting older..... I can barely handle opening the mystery leftovers in the fridge sometimes.

    i wouldn't be surprised if it turns up next year around october in a CSI episode. I'll guess it to be on CSI:Miami

    As Rover chewed on a bone, little Daisy noticed the pinata in a nearby tree was missing a foot. "Mama. That's not candy coming out. It's blood!"

    It's sad, but funny due to irony. The actual event itself (someone dying) is not funny at all and quite sad, but the irony if the situation is. Don't feel bad about thinking so.

    I actually saw a thing on CourtTV where there was a mummified body hanging in a haunted house that was over a hundred years old. Because it was hardened and shriveled it didn't look like a real body till some visitors were toying with it and the arm broke off and there was muscles and bone underneath. They later traced it to an outlaw over a hundred years ago who was shot fleeing police.

    Quite disturbing actually.
