I would like to express my most sincere feelings concerning the Hustonville Haunted House and Hustonville Police Chief Fred McCoy.
For several years I have passed the former location of the Haunted House where throughout the year you will see several hearses, which are used as advertisements throughout Central Kentucky. The words "insensitive" and "tacky" do not adequately express my sentiments. If I were a resident of Hustonville, I could think of a thousand other ways that I would want my city represented other than a hearse with a corpse-like figure sitting in the driver's seat. I have been outraged at seeing wrecked automobiles with red paint splattered on the hood - I suppose to represent blood from some untimely death. I could not believe my eyes when in a past article McCoy said that in the Haunted House was a mock electrocution and, if my memory serves my right, there was an actual autopsy video from the L.A. police department (something to crow about wouldn't you say).
