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.

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.
