This one is a bit different from the last few posts, but still very shocking. First off, the story,

"The body of an old man was left on a balcony in Los Angeles for nearly a week as neighbours thought it looked like a Halloween display. Authorities were eventually called to the scene where they found Mostafa Mahmoud Zayed, 78, slumped in a chair with a single gunshot wound to his head.
Dead body mistaken by neighbours as Halloween display
Neighbors of the man said that they failed to call police because the body “looked like a Halloween dummy”. Austin Raishbrook, who was at the apartment in the Marina del Rey district of LA when authorities were called stated, “The body was in plain view of the entire apartment complex and they all didn’t do anything. It’s very strange. It did look unreal, to be honest”.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has interviewed all the neighbors and are treating the death as a suicide."

Well then, that seems like something out of a horror movie. What would you have done? I honestly might have done the same and assumed it to be a prop.


  1. That's crazy I would have probably assumed it to be a prop as well.

  2. Of course, when the body started deteriorating, nobody really though anything of it.

  3. Wasn't there flies and shit buzzing around it? I think that would've tipped me off to the fact that it's a dead body. .-.

  4. So how should guy shot in the head look realisticaly?lol
