Bloody Disgusting spotted a hilarious news report from WTAE in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. During the police response to a fire at the George Washington Hotel in Washington, PA, firefighters stumbled on a grisly murder scene. How bad was it? According to WTAE, “Washington Police Chief J.R. Blythe thought Sunday’s discovery was the most grisly murder scene in his 35 years in law enforcement”:
“I had no idea what was going on — blood on the floor, the mattress, the pillows, piece of a scalp with hair still attached in the center of the bed,” said Blythe.
Half a dozen investigators and eight hours of overtime later, the Washington PD finally realized what they had found: an abandoned movie set for an upcoming straight-to-DVD film starring Corey Haim. The film, entitled “New Terminal City,” had shot a bloody murder at the hotel then left the set standing in case they needed to return for reshoots.
Let’s call it a ringing endorsement for “New Terminal City”‘s gore effects by Mo Cheuvront and Matthew Konz. Or maybe a stinging rebuke of the Washington Police’s eye care regimen. Either way, make sure you go to WTAE to watch Sheldon Ingram’s full report from The George Washington.
