Then the thief proceeds to the front porch where he unplugs the life-size zombie, carries it away and stuffs it into the trunk of his car.

In a Facebook post, the aggrieved owner tells people to “please be on the lookout for our poor kidnapped Zombie who normally howls loudly and has light-up eyes…except that on the night of his demise he was turned “off”. Oh how I regret turning him off. The video would be so much more amusing had he been turned “on”. In the name of Zombies around the world, please share so that this criminal is identified and brought to justice.”
