This past June iHorror broke the news that The real Amityville Horror House had been put up for sale. Less than a week ago {November 13th} marked the anniversary of the grisly murders at what was then known as 112 Ocean Avenue. Ronald DeFeo, Jr. shot and killed six members of his family in the large Dutch Colonial house situated in a suburban neighborhood in Amityville. DeFeo Jr. was convicted of second-degree murder in November 1975.

Over the years speculation grew as to if Defeo Jr. acted out this heinous crime with an accomplice, or two. With the countless books and films, The Amityville Horror has made its dark, bloody mark in Cinema history and as possibly the most well-known haunted house story in history.

In 1976 the Lutz family moved into the home after the Defeo Murders and claimed entities and poltergeists terrorized them. The Lutz family fled the home, and that story spawned the novel The Amityville Horror: A True Story and the 1979 film The Amityville Horror, starring Margot Kidder and James Brolin.

This week Newsday reports the infamous 1927 Dutch Colonial went into contract this week, the house has a buyer!

“The home has been restored and updated, but retains period details such as leaded glass, oak floors and built-ins, all in addition to a security system monitoring the property by cameras, an exclusive tour given to Newsday revealed earlier this year,” says Newsday.

Does this new owner know the horror’s that await? We shall see…
