Simi Valley murder

Summary: Most people would prefer to find a rare piece of artwork hanging in the attic than a dead body in the bedroom but one homeowner found the latter.

Imagine this: You just paid a ton of money for a house in a great location but when you go to move into the house, you find a dead body in the bedroom. There isn’t much else that can ruin the happiness of moving day and your thoughts on the house you just bought than a dead body, covered and lying on a bed. One homeowner in the Simi Valley has had to undertake this disaster.
