  • The Long Island home where the infamous “Amityville Horror” murders took place has hit the market for $1.15 million, according to the Wall Street Journal. The home was the site of Ronald DeFeo’s grizzly murder of his six family members in 1974, which inspired the 1979 Oscar-nominated movie “The Amityville Horror.” Although it’s unclear how much DeFeo spent on the home at 108 Ocean Avenue, it sold for $55,000 shortly after he slayed his family. The waterfront home has undergone several renovations since the murders, and now includes central air, a deck and patio. Laura Zambratto, an agent with Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, has the listing. [WSJ]
