CHICAGO (CBS) — Police in southwest suburban Channahon were trying to figure out how a real headstone ended up in a Halloween display.

The stone is fairly small, made of polished red granite, and edged with a cross and flowers. The only other words on the headstone are “Son” and the year 1959.
It was unclear if that’s the year of the person’s birth or death, as the headstone possibly could be for future use.READ MORE: One Dead, Another Critical After A Fiery Car Crash On Lake Shore Drive
