The home that sits on the lot where John Wayne Gacy murdered 33 boys and young men back in ’70s has sold … after quite a slash in the original asking price.
As we told you … the property hit the market in late 2019 for $459,000, but there were no takers for more than a year … alas, it finally has a new owner.
According to property records, obtained by TMZ … the buyer purchased the home for $395,000.
Now, to be clear, the actual house that sits on the lot is NOT Gacy’s former residence. In 1979, a year after police made the grisly discovery of 29 rotting bodies at Gacy’s home, it was demolished.
Seven years later, a new house was built on the lot … and that’s the one that just sold.
Still, the macabre history of the property — a 3-bed, 2-bath “beautiful brick home” with an updated kitchen overlooking a huge backyard — might be too creepy for most people … but apparently not the new homeowner.
That is, IF the new homeowner even knew about the property’s past. In Illinois, murders don’t have to be disclosed … but if a prospective buyer asks about it the realtor must be honest.
