Hey, creeps: You can now buy the mansion where Phil Spector murdered Lana Clarkson

Do you have more money than taste? Did you already pay someone to cheat on the SATs for your kid and then photoshop them into the pool so the USC admissions office thinks they were on the water polo team? Well, we’ve got a hot new thing for you to spend your money on: A fabulous mansion in Alhambra, California called the “Pyrenees Castle.” It’s a French-style chateau on a 2.5 acre lot just west of downtown Los Angeles, and it can be yours for the reasonable price of $5.5 million.

Oh, also, it’s the mansion where Phil Spector murdered actress Lana Clarkson (star of 1985's The Barbarian Queen) in 2003. He shot her in the mouth and then tried to play it off as an accident and also as a suicide. After a mistrial the first time around, Spector was eventually convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to 19 years in prison. Now you can live in that house! Of course, $5.5 million is a lot of money, and there’s gotta be similarly appealing French-style chateaus in the Los Angeles area where a famous man didn’t murder somebody—even if you will have to look around a bit to find one.


Unless, of course, you’re a big creep and you want this house because a person was murdered in it. If that’s the case, you have more money than you should. Somebody fucked up by letting you have money.
