Haunted houses are an autumn tradition in many rural areas, and rural McHenry County, Illinois is no exception. Local dairy farmer Vernon Stade has hosted a popular haunted house event for many years. However, according to a wrongful death lawsuit recently filed in an Illinois court, a roadside sign that he erected to advertise the event in October 2007 blocked visibility on the highway, factoring into a car crash that killed 14-year-old Judithann Yunevich. The victim’s family is asking for more than $50,000 in damages in the case, which is scheduled to go before a judge in late June 2008.
