Paranormal In The News 31/5/2010 - The Amityville House

CNN 'Amityville Horror' house on the market

"The tell-tale jack-o-lantern windows are gone and even the house number has changed. And now for the first time in 13 years (13 - spooky!) the "Amityville Horror" house is up for sale.

The five-bedroom Dutch Colonial Long Island home with water views and a boathouse is currently priced at $1.5 million. That's a long way from the paltry $55,000 it sold for following reportedly horrific events that took place there back in 1974 after Ronald DeFeo fatally shot six family members in their sleep.
The Lutz family moved into the home one month after the DeFeo tragedy, and their (fictionalized and sensationalized) story is the focus of the classic 1979 film "The Amityville Horror." The Lutzes claimed the home was haunted and that they were plagued by demonic images, walls that oozed slime, a crucifix that spun upside down in front of their eyes, a swarm of flies, objects levitating, a tiny room discovered that was not part of the house's blueprints and other such oddities."

Herald Sun Animal Rights Group PETA wants to rent the infamous Amityville murder house 
"THE animal rights group PETA has set its sights on leasing the notorious Amityville murder house on Long Island, which it plans to turn into an exhibit to scare people off meat and dairy products.
In a statement released on Friday, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) said it wanted to convert the house into a temporary "slaughterhouse of horrors", the New York Daily News reported.
A letter has been sent by the group to the current owner of the Long Island, New York home making the request and suggesting it may even attract more potential buyers to the Dutch Colonial which is on the market for US $1.5 million ($1.77 million).
Rather than the usual ghosts and malevolent spirits associated with the house, the group said it wanted to depict "the horrors" experienced by animals who are raised and killed for meat, milk, and eggs, and must endure on factory farms and in slaughterhouses, such as intensive confinement, filthy conditions, mutilations and neglect."
