No Criminal Activity Found at Scene of Police Investigation near Shenandoah; Horror Movie Filming Found to Be Responsible

The scene left behind by the filming of a movie near Shenandoah sparked a police investigation Sunday evening.

Late Sunday we reported that the Pennsylvania State Police and the West End Fire Department Dive Team, out of Mahanoy City, were called to Raven Run, West Mahanoy Township, near Shenandoah, for an investigation.  A State Police helicopter was also seen circling the area.

The area that was under investigation is being reported by police was on the border of West Mahanoy Township and Union Townships, approximately 1/2 mile wst of Raven Run.

Due to darkness, the investigation was called off until Monday morning.

Skook News has learned from the State Police at Frackville that the scene that was under investigation was not from criminal activity.

The area that was under investigation was actually the remnants of a horror movie scene that was left behind.

The movie is called Back Road and written and directed by Drew Pizzo, of Barnesville.

Pizzo says he learned about investigation through the Skook News article that was shared with him Monday morning.  He then contacted police to inform them that he was responsible.

Pizzo says that they were shooting a scene in the area earlier in the day with permission from the owners of the property.

According to Pizzo, Back Road is exclusively being shot here in Schuylkill County and surrounding counties with the feature length horror film being released in 2018.
