BATH, Ohio — The childhood home where serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer claimed his first victim remains for sale more than five months on the market.
The home, which rests in a wooded area along West Bath Road in Bath Township, is listed on Stouffer Realty's site.
It's within this home that Dahmer murdered his first victim -- Steven Hicks -- in 1978. Hicks' remains were scattered outside the house.
Dahmer was arrested in 1991 and confessed to killing 17 young men and boys since 1978. He was killed in 1994 in prison by another inmate.
The 2,170-square-feet house with three bedrooms and three bathrooms priced at $295,000 is currently owned by is Chris Butler, a man tied to '80s pop culture as a songwriter / guitarist for The Waitresses. The band is best known for the hit song "I Know What Boys Like."
Interviewed in April, realtor Rich Lubinski of Stouffer Reality Inc. says while the house has a certain stigma to it, he thinks that selling this house, while tough, isn't impossible.
Lubinski reminds people that "this house never killed anyone."
The realty company is not offering tours of the property, citing their desire to only consider serious buyers. The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The asking price is $295,000.
PETA had expressed an interest in purchasing the property to turn it into a vegan restaurant, but those plans were quickly ditched based on zoning restrictions.
