American Murder Houses
A Coast-to-coast Tour of the Most Notorious Houses of HomicideStreaming Audiobook - 2016
There are places in the United States of America where violent acts of bloodshed have occurred. Years may pass-even centuries-but the mark of death remains. They are known as Murder Houses. From a colonial manse in New England to a small-town home in Iowa to a Beverly Hills mansion, these residences have taken on a life of their own, gaining everything from local lore and gossip to national-and even global-infamy. Here, writer Steve Lehto recounts the stories behind the houses where Lizzie Borden supposedly gave her stepmother "forty whacks, " where the real Amityville Horror was first unleashed by gunfire, and where the demented acts of the Manson Family horrified a nation-as well some lesser-known sites of murder that were no less ghastly. Exploring the past and present of more than twenty-five renowned homicide scenes, American Murder Houses is a tour through the real estate of some of the most grisly and fascinating crimes in American history.
