“The pastoral property looks pretty inviting, considering its ghoulish history; the 2,100-square-foot house sports a scenic view of the surrounding wilderness, with lush gardens and walking trails, and the interior features two fireplaces and a European-style kitchen. (Given the details of Dahmer’s crimes, I’m going to refrain from commenting on that last part.)
The current realtor, Richard Lubinski, told AOL that Dahmer moved into the house with his parents when he was 8 years old, and it was in the same location that his first victim, teenager Steven Mark Hicks, was brutally murdered. (The other 16 known victims were killed in Wisconsin over a 13-year span.)
Lubinski clearly has no problem explaining the house’s morbid history, and claims prospective buyers don’t seem to mind. The house was previously owned by an unnamed musician (no, it wasn’t Marilyn Manson or Trent Reznor) and went back on the market in 2012, though there were no takers at that time. It’s back on the market now, with an asking price of $295,000.
If you’re thinking of taking a peek for yourself, bear in mind that the realtor is only interested in serious inquiries.
“The house is not a museum,” Lubinski says. “We’re not giving public Tours.”
This is my best friend Erica and this picture was taken when we went to NY together in 2010. She’s in NY right now and she’s coming to visit me in SF when she gets back in less than a week! So exciteddd.
