Twenty years after the violent murder of a teen’s mother and two sisters, the current homeowner has constructed a gruesome crime scene as a Halloween decoration at a home in Walker, Michigan.
In 2003, Jon Siesling, then 17, beat his mother and teen sister to death with a baseball bat, then plunged scissors into the neck of another 6-year-old sister killing her as well.
The current homeowner of the property erected three gravestones, crime scene tape, and a baseball bat on the front porch. In the windows there are silhouettes of bloody handprints, and a bloody “HELP US” is painted on the front door.
Amanda, the homeowner, is unapologetic for the tasteless display, explaining that the house had been in her family for decades and was where she grew up.
The Sieslings were friends and had rented the house, and she remembers cleaning up the blood following the police investigation. Amanda raised her children there, and says the display is actually for her grandchildren who love Halloween.
“We know some people might look at and say, ‘Oh my God, oh my God.’ This is my way of saying, ‘We are well aware. Stop screaming at us when you’re driving past my house.’”
