Ruins Steeped In Rumors Of Unsolved Multiple Murders?

 My crew member, Jackson, recently brought to my attention an old house that is in ruins near Chester, WVA. You honestly wouldn't notice it as you drove by.  You would never know that as many as 5 people may have been murdered with in its walls. 
 The stories are murkey.  There may have been two people in this home that was murdered.  There may have been as many as 5.  Everyone was stabbed to death in one story.  Chopped to peices in another.  In one story it was winter.  In another, it was summer and by the time anyone was found, well, that tale is gruesome.  The murderer was never found. 



 One story talks of a man who was arrested for killing a pregnant woman in Chester and he was also a suspect in the murders involving this old house.  He was sent to Moundsville Prison.  Later in a riot at the prison, this man was viciously killed, his heart being found behind a freezer in the prison kitchen. 
Do you know any stories about this old house?  Is there any truth to these stories?    The story involving two men being stabbed to death in the home happened in the 70's.  The pregnant woman story, the 80's.  When I was with CCFHV, I researched a lot of the area for the 70's and 80's and never ran across any story like this.
WARNING: DO NOT GO IN THIS OLD HOUSE.  IT IS MADE OF BRICK AND IT IS FALLING IN. IF IT FALLS ON YOU, WE WILL BE LOOKING FOR YOUR GHOST IN THOSE RUINS, TOO.  I STOOD ABOVE AND JUST AT THE DOORWAY TO TAKE MY PICS.  EVEN THAT MADE ME NERVOUS.  OH, AND IT IS COVERED WITH POISON IVY.
