Because ghosts aren’t real, right? Way on the other end of Long Island, the inspiration behind “The Amityville Horror” book and movies sold recently for $605,000, Newsday reported. That’s more than $200,000 below its original ask of $850,000 in June. The 1920s-built Dutch Colonial spans 5,000 square feet and contains five bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. It was in this house in 1974 that Ronald DeFeo Jr. shot and killed his parents and four siblings as they slept. He’s still serving a 25-to-life sentence at the Green Haven Correctional Facility upstate. [Newsday]
