You people saying you would buy it are missing the fact that the bodies were entoumbed in the walls! The place is more or less permanently going to smell like decomp.

thismomentinblackhistory: I rented a house. It was beautiful. Really strange design, like Frank Loyd Wright-ish. I would link to it on Google maps but it's on a small street in Athens, OH.

On the last day -- when we were moving out -- an elderly man approached us and asked if he could tour the house because he grew up there. He was telling us stories about how his father was, at one time, one of the few doctors in the area. He also explained some of the strange design features (his father designed and built the house himself). Then he led us into the backyard, which was basically a small forest about the size of half a city block that you could cut through to get to town. He asked us to pull away some of the ferns that grew everywhere on the ground, and there, not 20 feet from the house, was a graveyard.

Apparently it was for babies that died when his father was trying to deliver them.

is it not on google maps? I went to OU, and snuck into the crazy asylum on the hill, once... It was like one of those haunted hidden camera TV shows.

Dr. Whoof: LostInTO: I think the real question here is "Who would want to buy a house in Cleveland".

i kid, i kid, never been there.

I have been there...you are not kidding. Seriously, Cleveland is like a piece of New York City broke off and floated up to Lake Erie...a bad piece of NYC at that.


being like a bad piece of arguably the best city in the entire world, isn't exactly a qualifying remark, one way or the other. What part of Cleveland were you in, anyway? Perhaps YOU were in a bad piece, and thus your perception was skewed.

Sure they can, if they knew the right probate attorney in life.

In any case, a house where a serial killer lived and dumped bodies can have real value to the right collector.

Damn straight. Wasn't Reznor's Pig Studios in the Tate house?


Yeah, but he didn't know that when he bought the place. I guess some realtors are less than forthcoming about the history of the properties they sell. Go figure. ISTR him mentioning it kind of freaked him out at first when he found out.

Replace ductwork, drywall, insulation and flooring. If you can do any sort of hands-on work yourself it's simple and cheap.

There are no castles without ghosts
and no spirits without hope
but nobody passes the test of time

you stand in line you have your place
that in the space of moments falls
from again and again and again
to not at all
from again and again and again
to not at all

I do not fear the buried sounds
of voices echoed underground
there is no meaning to be found

It's on Pine Street (at the end of Mound) on the corner. It is a little hard to see from the road, but it has a distinct orange color and is made out of concrete. I remember sneaking into the asylum and it was very creepy.

So did I. The downstairs is now a cute "basement apartment". The owners had to install a large wrought iron fence/gate and put the mailbox inside it because murderbilia collectors kept stealing their mail. Obviously those kinds of places can be sold and do amazingly well.

/I almost rented the downstairs years ago

I grew up a couple doors down from a murder house. They took place on a summer night before anyone really had a/c so windows were open. I was a kid. I heard the commotion and screams etc. I remember it very vividly. The house then sat empty and overgrown with weeds etc for years before the bank that owned it paid to have a whole new facade and siding, etc, new porch and even paid off the town to put up new street numbers (swapping numbers with a nearby vacant lot).

/I had a HUGE gay pre-teen crush on the late-teenage boy who did the killings.

What they need is a Bay County, Florida style real estate agent to sell this house.

First you take out a heavy insurance policy on the place, building and contents. Then you contact the Klu Klux Klan or the Aryan Brotherhood or another one of those whack job white pride organizations. And if you can't get them interested, hell, just make one up. Then you put out the word: somebody killed 11 black women in this house and we're going to make a shrine out of it.
Then sit back and watch all the black supremist groups go apesh*t. With all the publicity, somebody will torch that sucker before Halloween. and you'll have a fat check in time for Christmas.

On the one hand the dead don't pay thier share of rent.
On the other hand, they don't stay up all night playing WOW
However , they ocasionally mess with the lights.
But, they usually turn them off, not leave them all on.
Unfortunally, they also have a tendancy to make some spots really cold.
The good news is, those spots are prime napping spots in the summer.
They do tend to whine and moan and make a low level racket.
That's ok though: I suffer from tinnitus and it canceles the ringing nicely.
Sometimes they possess a fellow and make him do unspeakable things.
To be honest though, if it wasn't for that, I'd probably never get off my ass.

So it all evens out.

My house was built in 1927. It's very likely that somebody died there at some point. And I'm ok with that.

Rev. Skarekroe: notmtwain: said he can still smell odors from the residence when it rains.

That was my concern.


Depending how long they were there and how they were stored that would be gross. You can clean a lot but strip it to the studs and seal them like smoke damage may be necessary to contain the smell if the bodies had putrefied .

I haven't lived in my hometown of Sacto in years - this has prompted me to investigate what became of that house after what I Boobiesed. I see where it was purchased not too long ago. I always thought it was a pretty house. Apparently that crazy old bat died in prison this year, too.

Probably one of the creepiest real life things I ever came close to. The worst part is how the mom's screams weren't at ALL like the standard Hollywood horror screams. they were more like a scream that segued into loud, despairing moans.

Exactly. Ours was built in 1920 ... it's just the nature of these things ... but a non-violent death is different from a violent death. I'm not talking karma: I'm talking resale.

THIS.

The wife and I will be looking to buy a house in the next year or two and one of the first things I plan on telling any real estate agents we work with will be, "If you know of any houses which are cheap due to supposedly being haunted or the site of some series of tragic murders we'll be happy to see them and buy them. I'm an atheist, a ghost's natural predator."

Did you develop your crush on him before or after the killings? Did the fact that he was a murderer intensify your lust?
Not judging you, we all know how hot bad boys and outlaws are.
