The middle of October is not a good time to die, especially if you expire from a gun shot wound to the eye. Such was the predicament for Mostafa Mahmoud Zayed, who died a week ago last Monday. His body, slumped on his balcony was discovered for several days because most people assumed he was a Halloweed decoration and not an actually dead person.
Neighbors told RMG News cameraman Austin Raishbrook that they noticed the body Monday “but didn’t bother calling authorities because it looked like a Halloween dummy.”
“The body was in plain view of the entire apartment complex [and] they all didn’t do anything,” Raishbrook told the LA Times. “It’s very strange. It did look unreal, to be honest.”
