CLEMMONS — Now, neighbours cheered and prayed for the destruction of the foreclosed former home of suspected murderer Pazuzu Algarad.
The brick ranch house with a two-car garage at 2749 Knob Hill Drive, where the bones remain of two males was discovered in the backyard in October, was demolished using an orange Kubota excavator.
The roof and sides, some of which were adorned in satanic drawings, symbols, and obscenity, were toppled by the excavator’s claw in a little more than one hour. The construction team had cleaned up the property of any
Lauren Hurst, who lives down the street, alternated between hollering woo-hoo and knocking it over from her folding chair in her front yard with each early strike from the claw.
Year Hurst, a 20-year resident of the area, remarked that you can almost feel the evil floating out. To be able to gaze out of my front window and find it gone will be such a relief. I have never been able to take in that view in a very long time.
The county housing agency deemed the home uninhabitable in October.
Charles Harris Construction Co. of North Wilkesboro is handling the demolition after Wells Fargo Bank took control of the house through foreclosure on April 7.
According to Harris, his instructions are to level the lot and add fertiliser, straw, and grass seed. He indicated that while landscaping might not be finished until Wednesday, removing the debris could extend into the next week.
According to Wells Fargo spokeswoman Emily Bauman, after demolition is finished, we will pass the land back to federal Housing and Urban Development, which will decide what to do with it next.
“Happy it’s gone,”
Along with a steady stream of passing drivers interested in catching a sight, residents from all along Knob Hill Drive turned out to see the home’s demolition.
The law enforcement probe into actions both inside and outside the home has disrupted the neighbours’ lives, and they are ready for things to return to normal.
Residents of one community are relieved that a house that was a nuisance to their once-quiet street has been demolished.
Crews demolished the house at 2749 Knob Hill Drive on Friday. It was known as the “haunted house” because two shooting victims’ bodies were discovered there by police in October.
We’re going to finally have some tranquilly and peace, said Lauren Hurst, a resident.
Hurst claimed that Pazuzu Algarad, the suspect in the killings, had been a source of misery for her and her family for years, therefore she was relieved to see the house empty.
She stated that both the eyesore and the emotions of everything that happened there are no longer present.
The now-demolished property was purchased by Wells Fargo at auction, and the company intends to transfer the land to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. Despite suggesting a park or a Habitat for Humanity home as alternatives, Hurst said she and the other neighbours are still undecided about what should take the place of the house.
Any negative connotations the house has in the community, according to Burton Kennedy of Keller Williams Realty in Greensboro, are likely to fade over time.
If you look at the historical evidence, the grapevine typically spreads information when there has been a neighbourhood murder or other tragic event.
