Zak Bagans Buys Manson Murder House
One of the homes that became a gruesome murder site at the hands of the Manson Family has been sold – appropriately to Zak Bagans, the star of Ghost Adventures – TMZ has learned. The house was owned by Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, the couple brutally murdered by Manson family members. Rosemary was stabbed 41 times, Leno 12 times. The August 1969 murders came the day after Manson Family members slaughtered Sharon Tate and four others. The murders sent shock waves through Los Angeles like never before.
Bagans jumped when he heard the home was up for sale for $1.98 million. He literally ran to check out the house and made a close-to-asking price offer. It will close in early September. He was smart to jump, because the realtor claims there were multiple backup offers.
The news came the day before the official opening of the Quentin Tarantino film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, starring Brad Pitt and Leo DiCaprio. The sale will close just after the 50th anniversary of the murders.
Bagans tells TMZ, as a collector of dark culture, he was drawn to the home’s history. It was such a gruesome scene. After committing the murders, the Family members showered at the home before leaving. He adds that almost everything inside is original, and this is one of the main reasons he purchased the property. The house is 1,600 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths. It also offers fantastic views of the city.
The ghost hunter won’t say what he plans to do with the house, but indicates it has a storied history beyond the Manson murders. He claims dogs have mysteriously disappeared from the property and occupants have been freaked out over what he believes is paranormal activity.
Robert Giambalvo of Redfin Realty listed the property.
