Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer’s childhood home, site of first murder, for sale in Ohio

Now that’s a killer deal.

The Ohio home where serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer was raised went up for sale last month — and the asking price has been slashed by more than 10 percent.

The 2,000-square-foot Bath Township home just outside of Akron has been on the market for nearly two weeks and is currently listed at $295,000, down from the $329,000 that was paid for it in 2012.

Jeffrey Dahmer — known for raping, torturing and dismembering his victims — was convicted in 1992 of killing more than a dozen men and boys. His childhood home is on the market.

“About 50 percent of the people I talk to about the home are immediately disinterested because of the history,” the real estate agent, Rich Lubinski, told WEWS-TV.

“But half the people don’t care. The house didn’t kill anybody. There’s nothing going on here. It’s not haunted. It’s just a house.”

The Bath Township home is the burial site of Jeffrey Dahmer’s first murder victim.

The 1950s-style house was the burial site of Dahmer’s first murder victim, Steven Hicks, a hitchhiker who went missing in 1978.

Dahmer led authorities to Hicks’ body after he was arrested in Wisconsin for killing another 16 men and boys in 1991.

Dahmer led authorities to a body buried at his Akron, Ohio, childhood home after he was arrested for killing 16 other men and boys in 1991.

The convicted killer — known for raping, torturing and dismembering his victims — was beaten to death in prison in 1994.

The house has sold at least five times since 1982.

Lubinski said it’s hard to tell how long the house could be on the market before they find a buyer.

“Having the history that it does, it could certainly help us,” he told the local ABC affiliate. “It could certainly hurt us as well.”
