The reader writes:

“The Swann Street house in which Robert Wone was murdered in was recently listed for sale for 1.6 million.”

It’s a really nice house but the history is just a little too disturbing. How much do you think a violent crime takes off the value of a house? This 4 bed/3.5 bath is yours for $1,599,000.
