    I am persuing a degree in Criminal Justice-Crime Scene/Latent Evidence.

    As such, some of the crime scenes we've trained on are pretty bad.

    So I was curious, would any of you knowingly live in/buy a house/appartment where a gruesome murder had occurred?

    I'm not talking about buying a house dirt cheap and flipping it, just knowingly live in one? Would it bother you?

    Simple answer, hell no! Not that it physically matters, but I would not want to live in a house where such a evil deed occurred.

    BTW I don't believe in ghosts or evil spirits or any of that cult BS.

    For me it would depend on how long ago the murder had occurred. If it was just a few months ago probably not. Not because it would freak me out, but Id be more worried of the suspects coming back for whatever reason.

    If it was many years ago, sure would. Id ask for rock bottom prices on said house since someone was killed in it.

    I have. Murder occurred while I lived there (was a kid). Also drove vehicles that were involved in auto-fatalities.

    What's the big deal? The land your place is on was probably burial grounds 5x over for ancient folks.

    How do you drive vehicles that were involved in auto fatalities, if a wreck occurred that was bad enough to kill the driver, wouldn't the vehicle be totaled?

    If I didn't personally know any of the parties involved, it wouldn't bother me in the least.

    If I ran someone over in my Sequoia they would be killed, my car is therefore still drivable right?

    Cars at auction where people have died, including suicide (I saw a brand new car where the guy mixed some chemicals and made his own gas chamber) are marked with biohazard stickers on the doors, they usually go to impact auctions where parts resellers buy them. I've seen some cars that you couldn't even tell what they were initially.

    As long as the place was properly cleaned up, it wouldn't be a problem with me. My wife on the other hand...:shocked:

    I live in an 80 year old house that I bought a couple years ago. I have no idea what all's happened there over the years.

    ? Are you serious?

    I was in a vehicle that ROLLED a guy standing in the road jabbering with another vehicle operator. That vehicle was a mini van, the other vehicle (one I was in) was a car. The guy was literally rolled like a cigar between two hands, fell down, a few hours later - dead.

    Have you ever seen what a 40 - 60 passenger bus will do to someone's head? (I was unlucky enough to be hit and dragged by a 60 passenger bus while I was riding my bicycle. My helmet saved my life - this happened in the USA).

    Ever see what a 24ft box truck will do to a bicyclist, or even a small car? Been there, seen that, not pretty.

    You are making the assumption that the dead person was INSIDE the vehicle.

    I also know four guys who crashed their car on New Year's eve back in ...1988? Guys I knew. Three DRT, one survived - ended up a retard, was later shot and killed. The car was fine after rewelding of a part under the chassis.

    Being from a 3rd world country, a lot of stuff is recycled and re-used.

    Yea unless the dead guy or killer was still there, or it smelled like a dead person.

    What's the issue?

    People die everywhere, all the time. As long as you can't smell their remains, what's the problem?

    Sure...the house didn't kill anyone. That's as dumb as people that blame violence on guns instead of people.

    Nope I wouldn't. Your just asking for a haunting. I wouldn't buy one that was built on an Indian burial ground either. Better to be safe than sorry. I believe in some places it's law that the home owner must inform the potential buyer of a haunting.
