I just read on CNN where the house that Laci Peterson and Scott Peterson lived in is being re-sold. Could you live in a house where someone was murdered? You may not believe he killed her or that he killed her in the house, but could you live in a house where someone was killed? I have posted a picture of the house in the True Crime topic/section. Scott Peterson is currently in prison at San Quentin, in San Quentin, California.

I don't think I would mind in this case, because Laci seemed like such a sweet person and her spirit would be at peace, and not dwelling in or around the house. If her spirit did stay connected to the house, I don't think it would be a problem for anyone. It depends, though. For instance if the new owners were to have a baby the spirit might become jealous, who knows?

I hadn't thought about the spirit possibly being jealous. That is certainly a new twist on things! Or maybe Laci's spirit would be happy for the couple and their new baby?

I think that Laci would be protective of any child that lived in her home due to what happened to her if her spirit resides at the home.

After watching the movie "Amityville Horror" I can honestly say that I would never be able to live in a house where a murder had occured, or even where someone lived who had been murdered. Whatever poor soul buys this house would have to be pretty brave, but then for some maybe there is a certain appeal to living in this house, although I can't imagine what that would be!

I could not imagine living in that house. I don't have any notions of ghosts or bad spirits. I just wouldn't feel comfortable knowing in the back of my mind. I know that this house is famous so it isn't an issue but I wonder if there are state laws anywhere requiring realtors to divulge this information. I know of a house down from my sister where a classmate of mine killed his girlfriend and mother. I can imagine it was not an easy sell if they had to report that to any prospective buyers.

You are required by law to tell perspectuive buyers if there are any bodies buried on the property. You also have to disclose any problems with the house. I do not know if a murder is considered a problem for the purpose of real estate sales.

I know I would not want to live in a House that was made famous by this Murder. There is no way you could live there without all of the neighbors and press scrutinizing you, and asking you if you knew who used to live there, etc. I just think it would be an Eerie thought even knowing this used to be their home. My brother some time back though, lived in an Apartment where a Woman had been murdered, and it was said their were Screams heard there from time to time with no explanation. The thing was he found out after he moved in that someone was murdered there.

That would be just wierd living in that house. Even if it was known that he didn't kill her in the house it would still be wierd just knowing everyday that a murderer lived in that house.

I would always have that in my mind. No not me, I would have to tear out and remodel. Knowing that Laci was killed there would creap me out. btw, I do think he killed her.

The condo where OJ Simpson killed Nicole and Ron was totally remodeled out front. It doesn't even look the same. They also re-numbered it to confuse any thrill seekers looking for the condo. I would totally do that to this house if I insisted on buying it.

I saw on Nancy Grace tonight the guy who just sold the house. He stated that his dog would not go into the master bedroom. That is where they believe Scott killed Laci.

Could you imagine living in that house on Halloween? Or on Christmas Eve, when he killed her? And I am not sure I would want to put my baby in the room that was supposed to be baby Connor's room.

Nope. I just couldn't do it. the murder was evil and I wouldn't want that near my family if I could help it. I think I'd feel sad alot of the time thinking of her and the baby. It would be scary and depressing.

No I could not. Actually friends of my parents' daughter was murdered last year and at this time surprisingly they don't plan to sell the house. However I don't know if I could ever live in a house where someone was murdered. The neighbor actually murdered this girl and even more so, who would want to buy his house??

There is no way I would live in a house where someone was murdered. It would just be to weird for me. And I would always be scared no matter who was there.

Scott has been brought to justice and Laci, her unborn child and family finally have peace. I would buy the house because its probably a good asking price. Alot of things probably happened where you reside at and may not know. Its not like the place is haunted.

No...I couldn't...I would constantly be thinking about her and him and the murder...I would rather have a place where I didn't know anything had gone on...and hopefully hadn't...

for me i can not say as a sure yes or no.. i can really live in a house where some body is murdered in condition where i really do not know the person. if i know the person personally then definitely it will be difficult to live in such a house. second thing is if the other people also do not mind to stay with me in such a house.

I couldn't, too much bad karma and energy in a place like that. There are some people who like places like that, kind of a tourist attraction type thing. I just find it too creepy for my taste.
