More accurately, Texas law specifies manners of death that are not required to be disclosed, but death by murder is not listed among those specified.

If the shooter was a RE agent, then absolutely, it must be disclosed because it is one's duty to make sure no one else is victimized by that agent. If the victim was a RE agent, it depends--was the agent carrying pepper spray? Did the agent voluntarily disclose they were carrying pepper spray?

Here is why it is so complicated: If someone got offended by the agent and knew about pepper spray, it might be considered self-defense or a lesser charge than homicide.

Make sure you check local laws. Here in the lower southeastern southwest is probably different than the mid-west islands.

Looking forward to your next thread..........

GoPhils, I have had a crummy day. Your post made me laugh out loud for at least a minute.

Thank you!!

As to the OP, it varies state by state.

In many states, the onus is on the buyer to perform due diligence.

My neighbors house was shown with blood on the walls and floors. She had a heart attack, fell and died. Her breakfast was still on the stove.

Second wife with life use of the property. Kids were just waiting for her to go - they put it on the market that afternoon.

After a murder, I think they have crime scene cleanup crews that come in to remove hazardous waste. Blood is a biohazard. I've seen several homes where murders occurred, (and bought one), and they have always been spotless.

How many years ago? Is there a link to a newspaper article you can share about it?

I don't think it has to do with ghosts, so much as stigma with the property, and/or people's own foibles.

I think this will be on the ID channel in a couple years! We read about it before it happened here first!

Really? An agent showed a house with blood on the walls and food still on the stove? C’mon! I would think an agent would advise it to be cleaned before listing as another poster said, it’s a biohazard!

My FIL had a heart attack and wasn’t found for a couple days and a hazmat team still had to come in to clean!

Yes really, I walked in on the first showing to see what they were selling the house for. If I'd known it was an official showing I never would have done so, I thought it was the relatives.

They did clean it after that but I never saw a hazmat team. Her friend found her within hours of her death.

The listing agent was really sketchy. I often saw people trying to get in without an agent and many times I'd have to go lock the door after they left as no one could seem to figure it out. Can't remember how many times I called them on weird stuff.

The house sold again 7 years later with no weird agent/buyer stuff. Oddly, that lady also died in it.
