It has been nearly 50 years since the night of August 9, 1969, when Leno LaBlanca and his wife Rosemary LaBlanca—residents of the Los Angeles suburb of Los Feliz—were stabbed to death by Charles Manson followers Charles ‘Tex’ Watson, Patricia Krenwinkel, and Leslie Van Houton; who then scrawled the words, “Helter Skelter” in blood on the front of their refrigerator.
The house of the murder victims is finally off the market, Fox Business reports—sold, fittingly enough, to a famous ghost hunter after being marketed for nearly $2 million.
The two-bedroom, 1.5 bathroom home was constructed in 1922. The sale of the house is expected to close by September—and Bagans has not said whether he will live there or use it for another ghost-hunting episode of the show, which currently is in its 16th season.
However, Bagans, a collector of things with a dark history attached to them, told TMZ that the home is “the holy grail.”
