History

During the late 1960s, when the site was a gas station, a woman was raped and murdered on the location. Her body was found on the right side of the station. For a while, the killer remained unknown until he was connected to other murders. He died in prison while serving a life sentence.

Eventually, the station was turned into a Blockbuster video store. One day, it was robbed, and two of the employees and two customers, brothers, were killed. The murderer was caught, but the Blockbuster was shut down in result. In June, 2008, the building was partially demolished and remodelled, becoming a small doctors’ office. The families of the murdered men often visit the site, leaving four crosses as memorials to them.
