If you could find out if someone died in your house, would you want to know? Founded in 2013 by software engineer Roy Condrey, DiedInHouse.com allows users to search an address to see if it had a dark former life (or even accommodates the afterlife). From murders and suicides to meth activity and arson, DiedInHouse uses data from over 130 million police records, news reports, old death certificates and more to determine if your house has seen horrors.

The website’s creation begins like a ghost story. Three years ago, Condrey received a text message in the middle of the night from one of his tenants that read: “Did you know that your house is haunted?” Condrey went down a cyber rabbit hole seeking, but not finding, an easy way to determine if his property had indeed seen a gruesome crime or fatality.

“I went online to find a ‘Carfax’ of sorts for deaths in homes and I didn’t find anything, but I did find pages and pages of people asking if there’s a way to find out if their house is haunted,” says Condrey, who rents his a number of his properties. He later learned through his data collection that, in fact, at least 4.5 million homes nationwide have had documented deaths take place on the premises. The number of homeowners that know about the history of their home is unknown.

Among the houses with sinister secrets is a home on a quiet street in Monterey, California. Its owners, Scott and Laura Cotes, told Inside Edition that convicted murderer Alfred Powell lived there in the 1980s and, according to police, buried the bodies of two of his victims on the property.

New website tells you if someone died in your house! - Clark.com

Some time ago, there was an unfortunate incident at a house near us where a man committed suicide. When his estate put the house up for sale, they found it was a hard sell because many people knew the history and wouldn’t even consider the house.

This is something my wife and I have discussed. To me, a house is a house. It becomes a home when you live in it. But my wife disagrees. She doesn’t want to be in a house where there was any kind of violent event. More people are probably like her than me. How do I know? This house near us sat and sat and sat while others around it sold quite nicely. Finally, somebody who thought like me came by and got a steal of a deal!
