If Hollywood were a true representation of North America, it would happen all the time: A family moves into their dream home only to learn it was the scene of a grisly murder that still haunts the site to this day.
Of course Hollywood is a fictitious land of make-believe and such absurd plot devices would never happen in Canada's pleasant world of real estate.
Tell that to Eric and Sade-Lea Tekoniemi, who are suing after being sold their very own murder house.
The Toronto Star reports the couple bought a Bowmanville, Ont., home last year, later to learn that it had been the scene of a double homicide 15 years ago. They claim their real estate agent and the home's former owners did not disclose the home's sordid past.
According to the Star, the Tekoniemis' statement of claim describes the details of the murder as a "material defect… which stigmatized, psychologically impacted and tainted the property."
