Well, if you've always dreamed of owning a home in a quaint town in Italy -- today just might be your lucky day. Or not. The home where Amanda Knox lived with Meredith Kercher (yes, the one where Kercher was murdered) is up for sale -- and it can be yours if you have an extra $500,000 lying around.
Relax. I'm kidding. It's impossible to imagine for one second that anyone would be interested in purchasing a home where a young girl was brutally killed. Who would want to live in a place like that?
Believe it or not, there have been quite a few visitors to the web page where the home is listed.
But one of the realtors says, "I hope to exclude macabre curiosity seekers because the property has a certain value."
A "certain value"? Um ... I'm sure it's a very charming home and all -- if you can manage to forget about the fact that someone was stabbed to death inside! How in the heck would anyone be able to get a decent night's sleep in that place?
About 15 years or so ago, there was a couple who lived in a house near where I grew up -- and one night the housekeeper's son broke in and bludgeoned them both to death after robbing the home. The mom of a dude I went to high school with wound up buying the house and moving in, and it always made my head spin. Why on earth did she want to call that place home?!?
As sick as it is, something tells me the real estate agency won't have too tough of a time selling this cottage though -- given how high profile the Amanda Knox/Raffaele Sollecito murder case was (and still is).
I hate to say it -- but I feel like there is some weirdo out there who will actually be totally mesmerized by the idea of living in a place where such an infamous crime went down ... like fulfilling some sort of twisted fantasy or something.
OMG. There really are some strange peeps in this world.
Would you ever consider buying a home where someone had died so tragically?
