A CHILLING TALE OF TWO CITIES-EAST LIVERPOOL AND WELLSVILLE

In the last couple years I have been hearing a story about 9th Street in East Liverpool,and more recently, the same story in Wellsville, also about 9th street. It is called "The 9th Street Slaughter House". The story goes that a doctor lived with his family on 9th Street and one day, just goes insane. He slaughters his whole family and then himself.
During the Johnny Appleseed Festival, the same story was told to me, only it was about 9th Street in Wellsville.
Asking around, no one knows the exact story, though one Police Officer I talked to in Wellsville said he did hear of a house in East Liverpool that was supposed to have had several murders in it, but it was torn down. The only house I know of in that area is the empty lot where the Taylor murders took place in 1979. That was not a doctor's family, but three murders did take place in the house that was there. I have been doing research into this story possibly being an Urban Legend of some kind, but so far I have found nothing to match the 9th Street Slaughter House story. If you have ever heard this tale or know of one like it, maybe in another city,please let me know. ghosting12@yahoo.com

The taylor murders are in fact true Debbie taylor and her 2 children where beat to death with a ballbat or mental pipe by her ex who was in fact a doctor. The house was on the corner of east 8 th st AnD john st back 1979 ,it was a red brick house. you can get information about the murders from the Library n the review old archives

I lived on 9th street in Wellsville and the house seemed strange to me. It's weird coming across this story. I thought it was just me.

It wasnt a brick house, it was a blue house & it set in the field next to a yellow now brown duplex that sits on 8th st.. You have the upstairs downstairs apartments that sit on the corner of 8th st & Green Ln & then if your looking at that apartment the duplex is to the left of those apartments & on the left of the duplex is where the house set..

I don't know if the 9th street slaughter house in WEllsville was referring to the house becoming a slaughter house because murder, but the actual slaughter house where animals were slaughtered was located on the corner of 7th and Lisbon Street. It was tore down about two or three years ago.
