Jeffrey Dahmer's childhood home still up for sale

BATH TOWNSHIP -- A local house with ties to a notorious serial killer remains on the market.

The childhood home of Jeffrey Dahmer, which rests in a wooded area along West Bath Road in Bath Township, is still up for sale, according to a listing 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.

Several months ago, we featured the home in one of our most-viewed stories on so far this year.

Currently, the home is owned by 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."

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.

Dahmer, a graduate of Revere High School, died in prison in 1994 at the age of 34.
