‘New Terminal Hotel’ Set Causes Police Scare

Our good friends over at The Dreamin’ Demon stumbled across a pretty awesome true crime story that I figured I might as well share with you. Washington firefighters responding to a fire at Pennsylvania’s George Washington Hotel stumbled upon what they thought was a pretty gruesome crime scene in a 4th floor room — only to discover it was the remains of a movie set. The story is that New Terminal Hotel director B.C. Furtney had left his “set” untouched in case of a potential reshoot. The site writes that Washington Police Chief J.R. Blyth was pissed off at first, stating he had to pay detectives to check out what he called “the most grisly murder scene in his 35 years in law enforcement” but that in the end everyone had a good laugh about it. The full story, along with a video can be found at ABC.
