Suburban Journals recounts
the story of Dave and Amy Rhymer
, a couple in their late twenties who last fall got a real steal on a Collinsville
home that was the site of a "grisly" murder.
The couple was initially clueless to the house's history -- but put in an offer as soon as they found out about the stabbed corpse that had been found underneath a tarp in 2007.
The fact that the sellers warmed to their offer -- $20,000 off the asking price -- wasn't the only benefit.
The place came furnished, too!
OK, so the Rhymers may be charming, but perhaps not the best subjects for the moral of this story: What the SJ
means to say is that neither Illinois nor Missouri require home sellers to disclose the fact that their humble abode was the scene of a ghastly crime
Anybody sniff a reality-show concept here?
