President Trump ‘burn in hell’ and dead body Halloween display angers neighborhood

A Halloween display involving a Donald Trump tombstone and a fake corpse has created a volatile situation in a Cortlandt neighborhood in New York. Poor taste and a debate over free speech pushed the story into the headlines.

The Cross Lane home has decorations on the lawn set up to denigrate President Trump, with his name above the phrase “Burn in Hell” and a body in plastic wrap behind the caution tape.

Theresa Gucciardo-Perry, who lives around the corner on Edgewood Road, spoke to the press, claiming that she was so disgusted by the setup that she called Cortlandt officials to see if the town could force Vergara to remove the display.

“I want to know how far freedom of speech goes,” she said. Gucciardo-Perry said she wants the decorations, and Vergara, out of the neighborhood.

“Fabian needs to be removed from the neighborhood,” she said.

“I’m doing it for fun. It was a joke,” Fabian Vergara, who lives in the home, said Wednesday. “I like Halloween, so I don’t see anything wrong with that. It’s a free country.”

“Is this about Halloween or about you making a political statement?” the angry woman said about the decorations. “You don’t like it here? Get the hell out.”
