Five Empty Houses Used By Serial Killer To Be Torn Down In Gary

Prosecutors say Vann used those five empty homes throughout Gary to strangle and store the bodies of the women he admitted to killing.

GARY, Ind. – Five empty houses that investigators say were used by a serial killer are in the process of being torn down.

Darren Vann is serving life in prison without parole after pleading guilty last year to killing seven women between the ages of 19 and 53.  

According to the Times of Northwest Indiana, Vann used five abandoned homes throughout Gary to strangle and store the bodies of the women he admitted to killing.

Gary’s Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson says once the homes are torn down, the city will transform the properties into gardens in memory of the victims.

The cost to tear down the homes is about $50,000 and is coming from the Gary Sanitary District and Stormwater Management budget.
