Pulling off a successful Halloween prank

Last week on Wednesday, October 24th, police in Illinois responded to a potential homicide. The parents of two kids between the ages of six and eight, decided to get the Halloween season rolling by staging a fake murder. The kids thought an actual murder was occurring, beat their parents to the neighbors house, and called 911.

Here are 3 tips to effectively stage a Halloween prank while keeping yourself out of news headlines:
1) Pull the prank in an enclosed area so your target stays in your realm of control.
2) Try and conduct your prank as close to Halloween as possible. This will decrease the risk that people take it too seriously.
3) If your victims are as young as in the news story we talked about, it's best to have someone with them that's in on the prank. That way if the situation gets out of hand, the double agent can smooth things out.

  1. This isn't the first time I've heard of stupid pranks like this. Are people that daft? In fact, not only around Halloween. I think the last one was for April Fools Day, but several days away from it -- wasted the cops time too.

    Aren't there better practical jokes than staging a fake murder? Of course people are going to call 911 if they arne't privy to it.
