One of the houses/crime scenes of the Charles Manson murders has sold to Ghost Adventures‘ Zak Bagans. The home was site to two vicious killings in 1969 and so Zak thought to himself: “Oh yeah, I wanna mess with ghosts in a serial murder victim’s home.” Because that always ends well in movies. And the biggest gag? Two murders and still it cost almost $2 million. Southern California real estate is ridiculous.
TMZ says that people really will spend money on anything, especially people with highly creepy niche interests. Take Zak Bagans, Holly Madison‘s new man and ghost hunter extraordinaire. Now that he’s amassed all this money with his ghostly, paranormal whatever, he can invest all his time, energy and money into his nonsense… which also made him the money in the first place, so I guess he has a system.
Zak bought one of the Manson Murder Houses, which sounds like the title of an episode of American Horror Story. When Zak heard about the house going on the market, he apparently leapt to his feet, ran over to the house and made a close-to-asking-price offer. The asking price? $1.98 million. You’re going to be sleeping where two people brutally lost their lives and you’re not even gonna try for $1.75? But apparently there are several other backup offers, so he was smart to just go all in. A lot of people want to live in a crime scene, I guess. And lets get into the crime. Warnings if you’re squeamish.
In August 1969, after the Manson Family killed Sharon Tate and four other people, they went to Leno and Rosemary LaBianca’s house. They killed the couple, stabbing Rosemary 41 times and Leno 12 times. They also showered at the house after killing the couple.
And everything inside of the house is original, so if any angry spirits are clinging to their stuff, don’t worry–it’ll be there. Clearly Zak just had to live here. I guess it was the two beds and two baths it comes with, or what TMZ calls an “explosive city view” whatever that is–I’m guessing very nice? Enjoy the view as you get haunted by poltergeists. Girl, I would not drive by this house and for good fucking reason. Zak says dogs have “mysteriously disappeared” from the property (maybe David Eason hangs out there) and there has been tons of “paranormal activity”.
This is all happening of course in time with Quentin Tarantino‘s new movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood which involves the Manson Murders and sort-of Sharon Tate. So I guess nothing moves death-infested property like an A-List Hollywood cast? The serial killer real-estate market must be booming right now.
