Deputies looked into the matter after someone called 911 and saw it was just a joke.

To try to avoid future calls to the department about this, the Greene County Sheriff’s Department put the picture on its Facebook page with the post:

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.
