Monday Morning Question of the Day

For the last week I have been following the very sad trial 
of a young man who killed his girlfriend and her brother here in our town. 

It's such a tragic case and on my drive to Sonic each day 
I pass by the street the house where the murders occurred.
Each day as I pass by the street I 
pray for both of the families- and the lawyers- involved.

Passing the street made me wonder something that I asked my family. 
And so now I want to ask you......... 

Would you knowingly purchase a house 
where a murder had occurred?

Not surprisingly- Tony said he would.
Madison and I said we would not.
What about you?


  1. not if i KNEW about the murder. like that one. no thank you.

  2. No, I would not. I think it would scare me too much.

  3. I orginially thought to say, no way. BUt I am not sure.

    About 20 years ago, a few really gruesome tortures and murders happened near where I live.
    The house where it happened has since been torn down and made into a park. (THe house was rented by the couple who did the killings so I am not sure if the person who owned it decided to tear it down or sell it... then it was torn down)
    There in the park is a small plaque of remembrance.

    I think if I had enough money, I would do that: buy it, tear is down and make it into a park or something.

  4. I wouldn't either...

  5. I honestly don't know. I've been thinking about it for a while and still can't come to a solid conclusion. I guess it would depend on how much I liked the house and such. Might be a fab house at a great price because of the history.

  6. I don't know. In 1988 or 89 there was a girl kidnapped from Kleberg parking lot at A&M and taken out to Lick Creek Park where lots of awful things happened to her and she was left to die. She actually lived, but every time I hear about Lick Creek Park, I think about it. That was over 20 years ago, so I do not think I could live in a house where someone was murdered. Long answer.

  7. Wow, Stacey, I didn't know about Lick Creek Park. We go there sometimes.

    I am glad to see that this house has indeed sold and I am certain it has helped the parents of the victims to not have to pay that mortgage each month {assuming they had a mortgage}.

    I don't know if I could buy the house. It would prob depend on the type of murder - random act vs. premeditated.....I just don't know....

    Thank you for the prayers.....
