Germany: Train of the Living Dead


Train passengers in the northern town of Bad Segeberg mistook a Halloween reveler dressed as a blood-covered zombie for a murder victim and called the police. The 24-year-old man had fallen asleep drunk on his way home from a Halloween party in Hamburg. The police told him to remove his makeup, and he was allowed to continue his journey. “Bad Segeberg is in a rural area and Halloween isn’t very well known there,” a police spokeswoman said.
