We've heard stories about people confusing Halloween decorations for dead people . . . but not the other way around.
--Back on November 2nd, 46-year-old Dale Porch of Denver, Colorado was coming home from his night job . . . and collapsed and died. On his porch, ironically. The cause of death hasn't been determined.
--His mailman came to the house a few hours later. And even though it was November 2nd . . . and even though the body probably wasn't surrounded with pumpkins and fake spider webs . . . the mailman thought it was a Halloween display.
--So he dropped off the mail and didn't report the body.
--When Porch's family found him on the porch a few hours later . . . along with the fresh mail . . . they called the U.S. Postal Service and asked why the mailman hadn't called it in.
--The USPS apologized and said the mailman is a, quote, "conscientious and dedicated employee" who would NEVER have made that mistake any other time of the year. And they say he's going to stay on the job.
