The story.

Woman Hangs Herself, Mistaken For Halloween Prank

(AP) FREDERICA, Del. The apparent suicide of a woman found hanging from a tree went unreported for hours because passers-by thought the body was a Halloween decoration, authorities said.

The 42-year-old woman used rope to hang herself across the street from some homes on a moderately busy road late Tuesday or early Wednesday, state police said.

The body, suspended about 15 feet above the ground, could be easily seen from passing vehicles.

State police spokesman Cpl. Jeff Oldham and neighbors said people noticed the body at breakfast time Wednesday but dismissed it as a holiday prank. Authorities were called to the scene more than three hours later.

"They thought it was a Halloween decoration," Fay Glanden, wife of Mayor William Glanden, told The (Wilmington) News Journal.

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

Every year, one hears of increased accidents and death on the holidays.

Also, people tend to die on haunted hayrides with frequency.

I guess this also happens more than usual.

One could wonder if the holidays are an excuse to get stupid.

Also, it would be a total shock to realize a halloween decoration was, in fact, a human corpse.

I'll have to remember that story. It would be a neat little gimmick in a movie.
