Several Bears players worked Monday night as actors at the Realm of Terror Haunted House in Round Lake Beach to raise money for the family of William Christopher Pettry of Lake Villa Township. Pettry was killed while in Jacksonville, Fla., to watch the Bears play the Jaguars a few weeks ago.
The players -- including offensive lineman Gabe Carimi, kicker Robbie Gould, and defensive end Cheta Ozougwu -- confronted patrons inside and outside the haunted house.
Realm of Terror owner Steve Kristof said he was contacted by Wayne Jett of Sideline Marketing of Crystal Lake about bringing in some players for a Halloween-themed charity function. He said Bears tight end Matt Spaeth came up with the idea, having participated in a similar event in Pittsburgh when he played for the Steelers.
