Demolition of convicted serial killer Anthony Sowell's Imperial Avenue home could begin soon

CLEVELAND - Two years ago, Cleveland authorities discovered a real House of Horrors, the home of Anthony Sowell on Imperial Avenue. Now, we're learning more about when the convicted serial killer's house will be torn down.

Cleveland Housing Director Ed Rybka said demolition of Sowell's home could begin in about a month.

Sowell's family, or whomever is listed as the property owner, will foot the demolition bill. If the bill goes unpaid, the city could eventually take ownership of the property.

Sowell was found guilty of murdering 11 women in July and is currently on Ohio's death row.
