Serial killer Joel Rifkin is said to have slaughtered some of his victims in the East Meadow, N.Y., home he shared with his parents, but that apparently doesn't bother the new owners who closed Feb. 24 on the sale of the notorious home, pictured left, and in the photo gallery below.

Identified only as a school teacher named Tracy and her fiance Jim, the buyers hope to finish raising their four children in this 1951-built home, they told Newsday.

"A house is a house. People die all the time in houses," said Tracy. "We're bringing all positive vibes ... no more bad."

Not everyone is so eager to live in the home of a serial killer, as AOL Real Estate previously reported about Rita and Anthony Bucklew in "Buyers Want Out of Serial Killer's Former Home."
