Police officers were called to a Lansing, Illinois neighborhood after concerned citizens reported an offensive Halloween decoration depicting a man hanging from a tree.
Griffin, 37, of Lansing, said she was talking on the phone with her daughter, a sophomore at Thornton Fractional South High School, when her daughter first saw the figure.
The girl was unable to describe what she had seen, and initially rejected Griffin’s suggestion she take a photo of it because she feared whomever put it up would target her in the future, Griffin said.
“She was like, ‘No, no, they’re going to see me taking a picture of this.’ She’s like, ‘I got to walk to school every day,'” Griffin said.
Griffin’s daughter eventually did send her a picture of the figure, which appeared to be a black body hanged in a tree.
It turned out that the hanging man originally had a “Jason” mask on his head depicting the hanging of the 80’s horror movie character. According to the individual who hung the decoration, vandals stole the mask at some point after it was put up.
