If you’re interested in owning a property that will forever be known as a place of death, have we got a home for you.
Serial killer John Wayne Gacy murdered 33 people back in the late 1970s. The home in which police found 29 rotting bodies buried underneath, is up for sale. The original house was bulldozed about a year after Gacy was arrested but a new home was eventually built on the lot.
After the house was demolished in 1979, the vacant lot would have thousands of fans, documentarians, and even ghost hunters visit. However, a Chicago woman ended up buying the land in 1986 for $30,544 and built the house for her retiring parents, who apparently knew what had happened there and didn’t really care.
Now the home is up for sale for $459,000. As a real estate agent in North Carolina, I know that homeowners don’t have to disclose when someone has died in the home. I’d be curious to discover how truthful the current homeowner is on the previous history of the murders.
