TN Sheriff: 'Dead body' is actually 'great' Halloween display and it's scaring the neighbors

GREENE COUNTY, TN (WIS) - A Tennessee sheriff's department received so many calls about a gruesome and realistic Halloween decoration, they posted it to their Facebook page.

The post continued the decor's shock factor. In a post made on Wednesday, the Greene County, TN Sheriff's Department showed what appears to be a body slammed down by a garage door.

It is, in fact, just a resident's gruesome decor choice for the upcoming All Hallow's Eve, but that didn't stop people from calling 911.

The post says:

ATTENTION EVERYONE!!! For those of you driving on Chuckey Pike in Greene County: THIS IS A HALLOWEEN DECORATION! Do NOT call 911 reporting a dead body. Instead, congratulate the homeowner on a great display.
