Need a new place to live? The infamous LaBianca 'murder house' is back on the market for $2.2 million (£1.7m) a year after it was bought by Zak Bagans, the star of the spooky documentary series Ghost Adventures.

The Los Angeles house was the scene of the brutal murders of former owners Leno and Rosemary LaBianca by the Manson Family 1969.

The LaBiancas were killed on 9 August 1969 (

Speaking to TMZ, Bagans reportedly purchased the home in July 2019 for a film production but later decided to end the project out of respected for the LaBianca family. When he first bought the house, it was listed at $1.98 million (£1.5m).

He said at the time that he was "drawn to the home's history", adding that one of its main selling points was that "almost everything inside is original."

The LaBiancas were killed on 9 August 1969, the night following the Manson attack at Sharon Tate's Beverly Hills home. As well as murdering the pregnant actress, they killed Abigail Folger, Wojciech Frykowski, Steven Parent and Jay Sebring.

The LaBianca house is located at 3311 Waverly Drive (

The LaBianca house is located at 3311 Waverly Drive in the Los Feliz area in Los Angeles, and was built in 1922.

Before Bagans bought the house, it was last sold in 1998 for $375,000 (£288,560.63)

In a strange twist of fate, the house was sold to Bagans on the same weekend the Quentin Tarantino film Once Upon a Time In Hollywood opened in cinemas in the US.
