Steve Kalupski, working as a housepainter back in 2000, saw the notorious home from a neighboring window and was instantly intrigued.
After he was told the tragic tale by the neighbor whose house he was working in, he ventured over to investigate for himself. Sure enough, through the windows, he saw 1950’s furniture, belongings, and even a Christmas tree and wrapped presents. Could this really be a crime scene preserved?
With no details available to verify the story, Steve just started driving up his friends, telling them the tale, and daring them to look through the windows to see the Christmas tree and wrapped presents themselves. But was it all really true?
Turns out, Steve embellished the story a bit, adding the wrapped presents as an extra bonus just for fun. And after about a decade, the story took off, becoming a real urban legend, complete with deliberately inaccurate details.
