It was a spring day on June 4th, 1960 when two young couples went camping at Lake Bodom close to the Finnish city of Espoo.

There are realtors that specialize in certain type of properties. These are houses with a history of murder and bloodshed, and they know that there's buyers out there, which notoriety is exactly what they're in the market for.
Just suppose... that you were on the market for a home, but you have this idea in your head of "exactly" what you want, and you're not going to settle for anything else. You've got the money, and you've been to a million places, and none of them fit the bill. And then you find it, and it's for sale!

Buy it and deal with any "bad vibes" with a lot of sage?
