The property was/is owned by Robert Strayhorn. The house no longer exists, as it was bulldozed in the late 1990s.

David Allen Sokolowski (aka David Ellwood), who rented the house from Strayhorn, was convicted of first-degree murder for killing his friend, Rubel “Little Man” Gray Hill, and his live-in girlfriend, Pamela Owens Ellwood, in 1992. There are more gruesome details regarding the event but I shan't post them here; if you care to read the details of the crime(s), see murderpedia.org/male.S/s/sokolowski-david.htm
 
For years after the crimes, locals would visit the house and property, as it sat unoccupied for years afterwards. Eventually, the house was torn down. It is now just a lot with a shed.
 
There was an episode of the 2018 television show Shattered (season 2, episode 9) titled "Butcher on Mincey Road" on this event.
