Lender wins auction of Faisal Shahzad's Connecticut home

Confessed Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad may be infamous for an attempt to detonate a car bomb in Manhattan's busiest plaza, but the foreclosure sale of his former Connecticut home ended like most auctions these days -- back in the hands of the bank.

At this past weekend's foreclosure auction, no one countered the $227,400 bid by Shahzad's lender, Chase Home Finance LLC, for the three-bedroom Shelton, Conn. residence, reports Bloomberg.

The home went into foreclosure after Shahzad, who is in jail with five felony charges, failed to repay the $213,000 owed by July 31.The confessed bomber stopped making his mortgage payments in June of last year, around the time federal authorities say he traveled to Pakistan to visit a terrorism training camp.

But the interested bidders said the fact a terrorist once lived in the house didn't dissuade them.
