The body of a possible crime victim was found in a parking lot in White Marsh, Maryland. It was first mistaken for … Halloween decorations.
Zombies and skeletons have been part of the October landscape for a long time, so when a real corpse was dumped near a bar, passers-by did not care.
A person driving nearby eventually decided to notify authorities, who confirmed that the person had been the victim of a homicide.
“The only information we have is that the body has suffered a trauma, but we don’t yet know what kind of trauma,” says Jennifer Peach of the Baltimore County Police Department.
Authorities have not released details of the victim’s identity.
