Homicide House

Twenty years ago, there was a quadruple homicide in this house.  The victims were teenagers and they were killed for accusing a young man of stealing a cell phone.

The guilty individual, as well as his two accomplices, were convicted and the house was eventually abandoned.

I drive by this house all the time and this week I was compelled to look inside of it.  It’s hard to describe how I felt entering the house.

There was a mixture of sadness and grief, due to the senseless murders that happened here.  I can’t even imagine how those poor teenagers felt as they realized their lives were coming to an end.  Also, I felt angry.  How can someone be so evil and callused?

I didn’t know the teenagers, but I feel for them and their families.  I wonder what they would have accomplished if their lives were not taken from them.

I left the house with a heavy heart and a lot of questions.

  1. It’s really a wonder why it hasn’t been demolished and destroyed, especially with its history. I’m not even there and the presence of all things unsettled just took over my body.

  2. It’s so sad that someone felt that being accused of stealing a $200 cell phone was worth 4 young lives. I don’t understand these things. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t tear the house down, either.
