Johnnie Mullins used his work clothes to create the Halloween display at his home in Mustang, Okla.

MUSTANG, Okla. — One man lies on his stomach in the driveway. Blood is splattered along the garage door that smashed his head and presumably killed him. Another man lies a few feet away, run over by a truck.

The two accident victims are in fact dummies, created as part of a family’s vivid Halloween display to shock and frighten. And it certainly has. At least one woman has called 911 to report that a man’s head had been shut into the garage door.

Jennifer Mullins said she got the idea for the macabre scene from a website and showed her husband, Johnnie, who was happy to scare up a display. Mullins knew it would raise some eyebrows, but she’s surprised by just how much attention it’s received.

A police spokeswoman said no crime was committed in the false-alarm 911 call.
