Because most states don’t have any laws about disclosing a death occurrence on a property — whether it was a murder, suicide, accident, illness or natural death — there’s nowhere for buyers or renters to go to ensure that their dream apartment doesn’t sit on top of a cemetery or something nice like that. Thanks to a new website, DiedInHouse.com, which gives a full report of all the deceased spirits who may be lurking on your property, never again will a person unknowingly move into a haunted house I mean, if you’re into living in the house where John Wayne Gacy, Jr. hid bodies in a crawl space…enjoy! The rest of us would rather not.
All you have to do is enter your address and for a small fee ($11.99 to be exact), the website will inform of all the people who died on your property and how it happened. Considering how difficult it is to find an apartment in NYC, I am going to abide by the ignorance is bliss policy. I’m too scared to know what entities may be hanging out in my living room.
