MUSTANG, OKLAHOMA – One man lies on his stomach on the driveway. Blood is splattered along the garage door that smashed his head and presumably killed him. Another man lies nearby, run over by a truck.
The scene in a Oklahoma neighborhood made of single-story homes and well-manicured lawns seems out of a horror story because it is. The two accident victims are dummies, created as part of a family’s Halloween display to shock and frighten.
At least one woman has called police to report that a man’s head had been shut into the garage door. Emergency personnel discovered a dummy.
Jennifer Mullins and her husband, Johnnie, placed the life-sized dummy at the garage in early October. The next day, they put another next to the truck. A sign above the dummy in the garage door reads, “You’re next.” The front yard is filled with spider webs, skeletons, crosses and RIP signs.
Mullins knew the ghastly display would raise some eyebrows, but she is surprised by just how much attention it has received, mainly online.
“People think we went too far and, you know, we’re devil worshippers and we must not be Christian folk,” the 32-year-old mother of two girls said. “They’ve said all kinds of stuff. But we’re normal. We love Jesus. We celebrate Halloween.”
