Larethia Haddon decorated her house in Detroit for Halloween last Tuesday. The centerpiece was a fake corpse. She dressed up a dummy in some clothes, and put it face down on her lawn.

Apparently it's pretty realistic, because when people saw it, they started freaking out and calling 911. The cops went out to the house three days in a row after they got calls about a dead body.

“I used to live in Redford Township, and oh God — the police department, fire department, they would come out every day,” Haddon said Thursday night. “Everywhere I’ve ever lived, it’s always been this way. But this year, for some reason, it’s getting a lot of attention.”

People have even stopped and tried performing CPR on it. It doesn't look any more realistic than your average fake dead body around Halloween. The cops say it's not illegal to have a fake corpse like that, they just wish it looked faker.

So, every year around Halloween my mom makes a dummy as part of her Halloween decor and sets it somewhere outside of her...
