No Bids on House Where Schaffhausen Girls Were Killed
The River Falls house where three Wisconsin girls were murdered by their father will go back into bank ownership after no one bid on it at an auction Tuesday.
The house is where Amara, Sophie and Cecilia Schaffhausen were found dead last year. Their father, Aaron Schaffhausen, tried to sell the house after their murders, but their mother objected, saying he would have profited from the sale.
KSTP Photographer Phil Thiesse says about four or five people were in attendance at the auction at the St. Croix Government Center but no bidders spoke up.
Anyone could buy the house as long as they had 10 percent of the winning bid on hand. Because no one bought it, the property goes back into the ownership of Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union in St. Paul, Thiesse said.
A call to the credit union wasn't immediately returned.
