A spacious property on the water in New York is always a hot commodity, but those rules change when the land is home to one of pop culture's most notorious killing sprees. In 1974, Ronald DeFeo Jr. shot his parents and four siblings dead in this Dutch Colonial house on Long Island, a famous string of murders that would be immortalized in books and movies. "The Amityville Horror" was based on the tribulations of the family that moved into the five bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home after the murders. The family claimed that the Ocean Ave. home was haunted by ghosts. The elegant waterfront property was listed at $1.15 million last year, but sold to local buyers after 70 days on the market for $950,000, according to Newsday.
