Rebecca CadeCHILLICOTHE, OH – According to police, the dead body of Rebecca Cade was seen hanging from a fence but dismissed by neighbors as a macabre Halloween decoration.

That is until a man walking his dog called police after he got a closer look at the “zombie prop” that was hanging on the fence by a shirt sleeve. On closer inspection, he realized he was looking at someone who’d been beaten to death.

Investigators searched the area and found a cellphone, a driver’s license, a shoe and a bloody rock. A coroner would later confirm Cade died after being beaten in the head and face.

Detectives would determine Cade had been attacked and tried defending herself. A trail of blood showed Cade ran from her attacker and tried to jump a fence surrounding an electrical substation, but would die suspended on that fence after her shirt sleeve got caught.

Later that night police would arrest 27-year-old Donnie Cochenour Jr., an acquaintance of Cade’s, after a tipster ratted him out. Cochenour has been charged with one count of murder and is currently on suicide watch in the Ross County Jail with bail set at $2 million.

Denise Hughes, who is raising Cade’s 15-month-old son, said she is sad about Cade’s death but wasn’t surprised.

“Rebecca didn’t deserve that, what happened to her,” Hughes said. “She was always running the streets and always doing the drugs, but she had people who loved her. I hope she knew that.”

Chillicothe Police Chief Keith Washburn stated the killing of Cade had no connection to a string of women, mostly drug users and prostitutes, who have disappeared or been found dead in Ross County since May 2014.

Surprisingly, this isn’t the first story we have reported on regarding someone’s dead body being mistaken for a Halloween decoration.

Back in 2009, a man who died on his balcony was mistaken for a Halloween prop until he started stinking up the neighborhood. In 2010, a 68-year-old man who blew his brains out was mistaken for a Halloween prop by some kids looking for candy. Lastly, in 2012, a mailman thought the corpse of a man was a Halloween prop and delivered the dead man his mail.
