We must wonder if this impressive Mohawk Valley property located at 642 E Main St. Little Falls, NY is haunted by murder.
Former home to the Maennechor has dark history
The Trulia listing shows a well-located and stately brick home. With nearly 5,000 square feet, it has commercial income potential for 2 apartments and even an eatery on the ground level. Herkimer County Tax Records show an end of 2014 market value of $92,500, yet this property is listed at a mere $49,900. It definitely outclasses just about every other listing in its price range.
Is this bargain basement selling price the result of a tragic history associated with the property, home to the private social club called the Maennerchor? It was here that club president, Francis “Mickey” Nelson, 74 was often on hand to greet guests.
Mr. Nelson was found murdered on September 27, 2011 in a field off Eatonville Rd. A young friend, Jennifer Riesel, admitted to killing him by running him over with a car found abandoned at the scene. She claims to have been participating in an assisted suicide he requested due to his despondency over his terminal illness. She confessed to this grizzly murder and is serving a sentence for second degree murder. According to CNYCentral News, Jennifer Riesel was sentenced to 16 years in prison. She showed no remorse for her brutal actions.
Stately brick property is outstanding bargain despite history
Although Mr. Nelson was not residing at the Maennerchor at the time of his murder, it’s possible that his work address of 642 E Main St. Little Falls, NY is of significance to property seekers.
Needless to say, this Mohawk Valley property haunted or not is a great buy! If I could, I would snap it up. Mr. Nelson has already been avenged, so he has absolutely no reason to haunt this lovely site. In addition, many buyers may find that Mohawk Valley Property Haunted notoriety is more of an asset than a liability. Get more details from Valerie Duncan at 315-508-4331.
