    Places where heinous crimes were committed - I couldn't live there. Willingly.

    Where Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman were killed by OJ - the owners completely changed the front entrance so it looks different.

    When I was 16 I bought a bass guitar that had previously been owned by an only child who died. I didn't know that when I went over to pick it up. It was rather solemn and weird handing them $300 for their dead son's prized possession. I did his memory proud by learning to play and eventually become a working musician with that bass.

    I was THAT CLOSE to buying a murder-suicide property. Had it under contract for 18 months, but it never worked out. Just found out about the horror a few days ago.

    You mean, like if the previous owners were recumbent riders?



    I mean, really, roadies have no choice but to look down on them.

    But I know theres a stigma in the minds of living humans... AND people Ive grown to know are connected to that event, and never would have been fully comfortable at my place.

    I don't believe in the supernatural so I'd have no problem.

    A buddy of mine works for the local water/sewage autority. They have a lot of buzwords like sludge and material, but he is always inserting the word "poop" in there.

    not a house, but i lived on a ship that had delivered troops to Iwo Jima and Saipan and had injured men die on board in transit to medical facilities.

    i saw some strange stuff, but never felt unsafe or creeped out.

    The earth's atmosphere is similar in that respect. The odds of breathing in a molecule of air also breathed by someone famous, Shakespeare for instance, are very high.

    Death and ghosts aren't a stigma (unless it's like everyone that moves in dies a horrible death within a week). Stuff like toxic waste is.

    I would definitely not buy a house that had been used as a meth lab. Due to the possible chemical contamination issues.
