The listing for a beautiful two-bedroom home in California calls it "truly one of a kind."
That's probably a common phrase on many real estate listings. But for this home in particular, it rings true — the home was the site of two grisly murders committed by the followers of Charles Manson, nearly exactly 50 years ago before "Ghost Adventures" host Zak Bagan reportedly made an offer on the home.
On Aug. 10, 1969, Manson's followers murdered Rosemary and Leno LaBianca in the Los Feliz home, one night after a pregnant Sharon Tate and four others were famously murdered in the home of Tate and her husband, director Roman Polanski.
According to the Los Angeles Times, California home sellers are legally required to disclose if a death occurred in a home within three years of the house hitting the market. Since the LaBianca murders happened 50 years ago, the sellers aren't required to disclose the death. However, Redfin listing agent Robert Giambalvo told the LA Times he still mentioned to potential buyers that they should do research before making an offer on the house so there were no surprises.
But the home's history is exactly why Bagans of "Ghost Adventures" fame was interested in the $1.98 million house, he told TMZ.
"Zak won't say what he plans to do with the house, but says it has a storied history beyond just the Manson murders. He says dogs have mysteriously disappeared from the property and occupants have been freaked out over what he says is paranormal activity," TMZ reported.
It's not the first time Bagans bought an item related to Manson and his crimes. According to TMZ, Bagans' "Haunted Museum" in Las Vegas also allegedly features Manson's dentures, bone fragments, the hospital gown he was wearing when he died and two paintings, one allegedly covered with Manson's ashes and one with his urine. More recently, Bagans purchased a wedding dress reportedly belonging to Tate, who married Polanski the year before Manson's followers murdered her.
The Redfin listing for the California home says "active under contract," but also reads that the site is "accepting backup offers."
