Trick-Or-Treating at the Boise Murder House
So which house is the scariest house to trick-or-treat at? Without a doubt, many locals would say it's the infamous Murder House in Boise.
The quick version of what happened on Friday, June 30, 1987, is that there was the gruesome murder of 21-year-old Preston Murr at his home which is located just off Broadway.
Preston was involved with some kind of argument with two other men and somehow escaped the home, bloodied and battered, got to the front door of the house across the street, pounded on the door for help but his neighbors were too afraid to open it. The police were called but for some reason, it took them way too long to get there. By the time they showed up, Preston's body had been chopped up into 13 pieces. A week later part of Preston's body was found 100 miles away in the Brownlee Reservoir.
It's now believed that Preston haunts the house and the legend of his ghost and what happened grows with each decade that passes.

They're looking to take their 'SCARED' factor to the highest level and freaky or not, you know there'll be someone knocking on the door of the Murder House near downtown Boise looking for a TRICK or a TREAT. Happy Halloween.
