I was expecting something cooler
 
2014-02-03 08:35:34 PM  
And they said: Don't trust the biatch in Apt. 23!
 
2014-02-03 08:36:24 PM  
Calling a There exists fallacy*.  The odds that that apartment would have 3 murders in it are low.  The odds that any apartment would have 3 murders in it in a short time approaches 1 as time approaches infinity and murder rate != 0.

*Don't know the actual name.  Think of it as the "This 1 metric out of 1024 coincidental ones I happened to be tracking has predicted 10 of the last 10 presidential elections.  Yes, but 1023 of them didn't and this one just got lucky."

Bah, just a landlord trying to benefit from horror movie fans that will turn it into a shrine. Expect a book to be released within a year with movie rights sold off a year after that...

/not really
//sucks for those in that building

Just change the locks.
 
2014-02-03 08:41:48 PM  
Maybe the apartment has a lunatic in its crawlspace/attic?
 
2014-02-03 08:43:37 PM  
So three <i>different</i> people?  Not one person three times, or one person twice and someone else just once?  Thanks for clearing that up.

You might be looking for the Bonferroni Correction?
 
2014-02-03 08:51:48 PM  
You know what would be even scarier? If the same person was murdered three times in that apartment.

Interesting.  Didn't know that had an actual name.

Pfft...call me when the SAME person gets murdered there three times.
 
2014-02-03 08:58:26 PM  
Great Hills is a "wealthy" area. Apparently that doesn't stop coke whores from getting homicidal.
 
2014-02-03 09:00:22 PM  
I think I lived in those apartments in the early nineties.  I never got murdered, but I don't remember which unit I lived in.  I used to drink a lot of vodak at the Friday's up the street.  Maybe that's why I don't remember where I lived.
 
2014-02-03 09:02:31 PM  
Two people were murdered.  One was shot in self defense.

*allegedly
 
2014-02-03 09:03:29 PM  
But theoretically your chances of getting murdered would be way less since so many people have already been murdered there.

Subby, they would have to be different people as the same person can not be murdered 3 different times.

It's not that wealthy-- at least not where those apartments are. I'm at Stonelake and 360 across from REI and Whole Foods-- under the Google building. My rent is "high." But it's an apartment complex. I have plenty of trashy ghetto neighbours. Meth, coke, crack. It's all here-- both production (meth) and consumption.

The trend over the last few years in this area seems to be a more transient residents, more crime, more pan-handlers, more vandalism and younger/rowdier tenants. I noticed that Whole Foods and now Randall's both have police patrolling. And there is a rumor that there is a prostitution/drug ring flourishing in the nearby hotels (360&1). Last weekend they had a pair of idiots rob four different people/establishments at gunpoint in the same general area as these shootings.

A lot of the professionals who are here for the convenient location of my apartment complex are leaving for quieter and nicer places. A lot of the UT students are leaving because the rent has been jacked-up so high. You'll notice that there is still vacant space in the Gateway plaza as well.

It's a nice area, and I enjoy living here. But it's not particularly "wealthy," just expensive.

The bad parts of Austin have one thing in common. Can you guess what it is?

/My brother's next door neighbor was the chick that had her head cut off by her doped-up boyfriend who proceeded to carry it with him.
 
2014-02-03 09:54:38 PM  
Did anybody say that one person can't be murdered more than once yet? I came here to say that. By that, I mean the same person can't be murdered twice...or 3 times. I mean, a person can be murdered once. We all know that. However, once someone is murdered once, they can't be murdered again.

/glad we cleared that up

You think that's bad subby, consider this.

The Denver Broncos have been to the Super Bowl seven times. Six on them featuring John Elway in some capacity. They have won exactly two of them. He's also responsible for the three of the top five most lopsided losses in NFL history.

Can we start talking about the Elway Curse?

on the news last night, a murder in an apartment in Cambridge, MA.  My first thought was "Hey, a unit just became available.  And it might even be had for less than usual."

/Oh, ah.  Yeah, sorry about the victim but his girlfriend's going to jail so it isn't like she's going to be living there any longer, amiright?
