Jeffrey Dahmerís childhood home for sale in Ohio (again)

The house where serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer grew up and committed his first murder is for sale again in northern Ohio.

Situated on a private wooded lot in a wealthy neighborhood near Akron, the three-bedroom home is priced at $295,000.

The home was first listed two years ago before being pulled off the market. Realtor Rich Lubinski said it failed to sell then because of the depressed housing market and its notorious past. […]

The house isn’t open for tours, and Lubinski will only show it to serious buyers. “This is not a museum,” he said. …

Lubinski said he has gotten calls every day about the house since it went back on the market about two weeks ago. About half the people don’t seem to care about its past, he said. “The others, they’re immediately not interested,” he said.

He tells potential buyers that “this house never killed anyone.”
This realtor will continue to sit on that house, I think.

Could be offered as a possibility for a haunted bed and breakfast type business, same as the Lizzie Borden house.

I wouldn’t mind buying it, but not at that price and knowing Ohio people from that area, NO WAY.

That might be the only sensible idea those folks have ever had, and it’s probably only 1/2 sensible.

Time to say a Hail Mary for J.D. and his victims. He was baptized in prison, IIRC. He said he deserved the death penalty, or to be murdered.

Well, I was a cop for 10 years in southwestern Ohio and had to go to northeastern Ohio a few times. I actually thought I was in a combat zone back in Africa for while. I was very happy to wear my.357 while up there.

The house is located in Bath, a peaceful wooded suburb, in picturesque terrain. You could rest easy there, the only "African" you would have to worry about combat with would be a nearby neighbor named Lebron James. The rest of the neighbors are just good prosperous people. Maybe you best stay in southwestern Ohio, with your .357 to keep you happy.

Totally agree, but then I am a little biased having been born and raised in Bath. It is a fabulous and most beautiful town. In fact, we lived about a mile and a half from the Dahmer home. Before all the news came out, my sister even looked at buying that house! YIKES! It really is a beautiful home on a most lovely lot.

I would buy it if I was looking in that area. Big deal that the house has a horrid past. Unless you believe you are going to do the same thing then it is no big deal. That might keep the kids coming to the door on Halloween…lol. Seriously, I find that so silly….other homes have the same problem. The only home that never has issues is the “Mendez Home” which of course it won't because it is in Bel Air California…..people living there aren't stupid.

The jingle could go something like this!

OMG I think I just lost my appetite. Actually it is not far fetch. I believe one of the Donner Party survivor actually opened up a restaurant.

Didn’t Jeffry gave his life to Christ 2 weeks before he was murdered?

The thought came from the Cullen Davis mansion in Fort Worth. He was charged with a double murder in the mid-seventies, but later acquitted. His mansion was made into a dinner theater.

Sorry, dude. I got out of that state 35 years ago and never looked back.

I think it was more than two weeks. Maybe not a whole year.
