Doesn't that property now belong to the surviving son?

Newtown residents agree

Residents don't agree. "Some survey responses said."

They often do this with the residences of high-profile killers (Rader for example http://www.kansas.com/2007/03/08/16553/park-city-tears-down-btk-house . html).

I always thought it was weird, unless you believe in hauntings.
 
2014-04-02 10:36:15 AM
I think they did this with Bernardo's/Homolka's home too. I can see it, just tear it the fark down and build new one, erase that shiat.

this was my first question.  They think they have a right to the house become the guy who lived there was a psychopath?
 
2014-04-02 11:33:32 AM
They did this with Dahmer's apartment building. Probably a good thing since people like me would flock to the place. Morbid curiosity and all.
 
2014-04-02 12:22:39 PM
OMG it's a farking house. Who cares what happens to it? It's not like the house told him to do it. I can understand it a little more if he actually murdered people in the house, but this is just a house.

"Ohhh there's the window he used to look out of! And check out that rope swing. I bet it's woven with natural fibers and pure EVIL!"

Baby Killer. Father Raper. What are you? Group W?

 they want the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter's home torn down and the property turned into a park or nature preserve.

You know. Some place our kids can pee on.

Lee451: Doesn't that property now belong to the surviving son?


I can't imagine he would really want to live in the house where his mother was murdered (and the place is probably unrentable), so if the town offered him a fair price for the property, he would almost certainly take it.  They wouldn't even have to go to the trouble of using eminent domain, as long as the property tax is getting paid and the lawn mowed.

Well, it's different when it's a place where someone brought the people back to kill... They tore down John Wayne Gacy's house, too, but nobody would REALLY want to buy a house that had once had at least 14 bodies buried in the crawlsapce.

This is just stupid, though.

Ohh I forgot he murdered his mom in there (thanks wxboy). Sure tear it down. But my point still stands on the rope swing.

Kids aren't going to learn how to be traumatized victims their entire lives on their own you know. It takes a village to make sure they know exactly how damaged they were, and how much they should be acting out as a result.
 
2014-04-02 12:35:52 PM
Everyone needs to let this Newtown shiate go. That was like over a year ago, let it die already.

I guess the town _could_ buy it from the rightful owner then do this.

So they tore down the perfectly fine school just to rebuild it.
Now they want to tear down the perfectly fine house.
Next they will want to tear down the whole town and rebuild it.
You know, for the kids.

Yep.  Farking a$$hat media.  Could have been three people and the headline is "Newton residents..." like it's unanimous and top of their list.  I'd call Subby an a$$hat who should know better, but this is Fark and we're lucky we can read, much less provide intelligent interpretation.
 
2014-04-02 12:42:55 PM
Because it was the house that crazy/evil? There is no logic to this. I can understand it in cases where the murderer caused a lot of damage to the structure (rotting corpse smell, etc) but otherwise I think that is silly.
 
2014-04-02 12:43:34 PM

smoky2010: Everyone needs to let this Newtown shiate go. That was like over a year ago, let it die already.


I agree. After all they can just pop out new kids to replace the dead ones. In fact they'd already have replacement kids if they hadn't spent all this time moping.

Plenty of houses have had a death-- murder or otherwise-- in them.  We're going to tear them all down?

But I will acknowledge one good reason to do it: the same a-holes who love to rubberneck at and take personal pictures of road accident scenes are going to want to go see "the killer's house" and the town won't be able to fully move on.  So I can see tearing it down to prevent out-of-town-asshat tourism.
 
2014-04-02 12:47:13 PM
Maybe they can start a memorial gun club and target range

Yeah, great idea, let's create a park to celebrate this monster's monstrous monstrosity of be a monster.
 
2014-04-02 12:57:35 PM
What-- somebody hasn't burned down the place already?

I'm surprised, and a little disappointed. I guess the good people of Newtown are just lazy.
 
2014-04-02 01:03:58 PM
Enough with the freakin' Newtown parks already!  Haven't they already built a memorial park for every kid?  I know I read about them.  The parents designed them and they are named after each kid.  Pretty sure 27 new memorial parks is about quota.

Why is it so hard to figure out what to do with the money?  Wasn't it donated to the families of the victims?  Why is dividing x amount of money amongst x number of next-of-kin so difficult?
 
2014-04-02 01:04:51 PM
Slightly OT, but whatever happened to Dylkan Klebold and Eric Harris's house/ families? did they relocate etc?

Because they can't exploit it for press coverage then.

Well I'm sold

SuperNinjaToad: Slightly OT, but whatever happened to Dylkan Klebold and Eric Harris's house/ families? did they relocate etc?


I believe Karen Klebold still lives in the same house.  She wrote a book a few years back.  I think she's pretty much stuck there because of the huge settlements against her.

Super Chronic: Lee451: Doesn't that property now belong to the surviving son?

Well, presumably it belongs to the mother's estate, and before it can be transferred to heirs there might be some lawsuits that have to be settled.


Could there be? She was already dead by the time any subsequent claims could have arisen.

Sad as it may be, this is probably the most accurate and honest assessment of the situation one can come up with.

Absolutely, you can sue an estate for things the decedent did.

(The merits of a lawsuit in this case, well, that's a different question. Although I could think of a few claims that might be non-frivolous enough to result in a settlement that winds up with the town owning the house.)

It wouldn't matter anyway... found an article that indicates she was worth less than $70,000.  The house was heavily mortgaged for more than its worth.  She had some jewelry and a bit of cash.

They should tear down the Bushmaster factory and rebuild it as well.

What about the video game Lanza played nonstop? We know that video games causes violence, so obviously this game cause this horrific crime and must be banned and removed from every household and arcade that has it.

What game?

Dance Dance Revolution!

You'd be surprised. A guy in the city I worked in killed eight women and had their bodies stashed all over the house...while he was living there with his parents.

And that place sold, no problem.

/look up 'kendall francois'

Gacy's home was apparently also attracting a LOT of sightseers... I don't understand people sometimes. Well, most of the time, actually.

I'm curious, how big is the place? Some cities really ARE under-represented by parks. Did 27 NEW parks make it more like going to Yosemite than a town, or did thuis make it actually look like a nice place for kids?

So, you didn't RTFA?

a small percentage of community members mentioned funds to buy and tear down Adam Lanza's home, said Jennifer Barahona, the foundation's executive director.

It's not weird. People want their little neighborhood to stay a fine little neighborhood. Not be visited by out-of-towners with weird issues who wanna gawk at the house some farko who ate people lived in. What's weird about that? Let's pretend your home is right next to the biggest mecca for furries, EVERYDAY. I'm sure you'd be thrilled.
