Coleman House
Columbia, Illinois

Chris Coleman, once a bodyguard to well-known televangelist Joyce Meyer, was convicted for the 2009 killings of his wife Sheri Coleman and two sons, Garett, 11, and Gavin, 9, in their sprawling lakeside home. The house on Robert Drive sat vacant with cryptic messages still scrawled on the walls in red—allegedly a move by Coleman to make it seem as though a religious fanatic committed the murders—until May 2010, when Wells Fargo Bank bought it for north of $250,000. According to Trulia, where the house is listed as a "distressed property," a foreclosure auction led to a sale of the home for about $180,000.
