Prop Corpse in Haunted House Turns Out to Be Real Dead Guy

Here's a story about a guy who died in a haunted house and was thought to be just a prop for two entire weeks.

According to police, a 71-year-old man, whose identity has not been released pending notification to the family, had leaned up against a corner of the building after climbing the stairs to the second floor, and had apparently passed away.  “We don’t yet know whether he had a heart attack or an existing illness that may have caused his death,” said Officer Allison Garfield, who had been on the scene to direct traffic. “It was mayhem after he was discovered, though. People ran from the building screaming, but not in a good, fun way as you’d expect at a place like this.”

That same evening, 31-year-old Susan Johnston, screamed in terror as her children, who she was accompanying through the haunt, accidentally bumped into what they thought was a prop dummy, and discovered it to be an actual dead body.

---Upon further research, we've found that this story may in fact be satire, though not nearly satirical enough to pass as good satire. More likely, it seems, the author of this story was just trying to lie to people. We're going to keep the post up, however, because it's an interesting idea, and might give some people chills. We love scary stories here at Alone at Night, but always try to give you stories we believe are true. Though we have to trust our gut when sharing stories, as few people present their story with solid documentation, we don't want to share obviously false stories (there are enough websites that do that). So, please, keep the true scary stories coming. Email your scary story to Aloneatnightblog@gmail.com
