House Where Father Killed Children Is Razed

Los Angeles Times/July 11, 2006

The house where a man molested and killed nine of his children was demolished Monday.

Marcus Wesson, patriarch of the cult-like clan that lived in the home, was sentenced to death in 2005 on nine counts of first-degree murder, and to 102 years in prison for sexually abusing the minors in his care.

Police broke into the home in 2004 after a prolonged standoff brought on by a family dispute. They found nine bodies in a back room and 10 white coffins in the living room.

Since then, the house has stood empty. Steve Hosey, who bought the home last fall with a partner, said they had "no specific plans" for the property.
