Ghoulish Figures Coming Down at Central Texas Cemetery
TEMPLE, Texas (AP) — Some ghoulish decorations at a Central Texas cemetery are coming down after complaints about Halloween-type figures set up on a grave.
The Temple Daily Telegram (http://bit.ly/1WtdsZs) reports officials at Hillcrest Cemetery in Temple say the items violate cemetery decorum rules. The display includes two masked figures with skull themes, flowing garments and fake spider webs.
Authorities are not sure who decorated the gravesite.
Cemetery director Brenda Coley on Monday planned to contact relatives of the person whose grave was targeted, to coordinate removal of the items.
Coley says the site "looks like a house of horrors" and there needs to be more respect. She's also received calls and other complaints about the decorated grave, which Coley first noticed on Friday.
