St. Louis public housing officials granted permission to a renter to break her lease after learning her home had once been a suspected serial killer’s tοrture chamber

Catrina McGhaw’s landlord refused to break the lease when confronted. McGhaw realized the landlord was Sandra Travis, mother of the alleged killer, Maury Travis.

McGhaw discovered her rental house in Ferguson, Missouri had been the home of Maury Travis after a family member told her to watch a cold case documentary about serial killers on the A&E network, according to a story in The Daily Mail.

Travis, a 36-year-old waiter, committed suicide in jail in 2002 after he was charged with killing two St. Louis area women, according to published reports.

Prior to his capture, Travis had sent a map to a local newspaper to identify one of his victims. Police were able to trace the map, which he made using a web program, which led them to his computer.  When police searched his home, they found makeshift cells in the basement and videos of Travis tοrmenting women before tying them up to a wooden beam that still stands to this day. They believe he was responsible for nearly two dοzen deαths.

‘This whole basement was his tοrture chamber and it’s not okay,’ McGhaw told local television reporters.

The landlord even gave her the dining room table; the same one from the crime scene photos.

“When she showed us the house, she said ‘You can have this table if you want,’” said McGhaw, who had signed a lease in March.

Sandra Travis told KMOV that she had told McGhaw about the home’s grim past.

McGhaw denies that and claims she would have remembered if she had been informed that people had been murdered in the basement.

With the permission of the St. Louis Housing Authority, McGhaw will move out later this month.

    The mother should had been truthful. Someone else said, the mother should have had the house razed, I agree.

    It is illegal to rent or sale a home or apartment without notifying the new occupants of any murders that took place on the premises. I would definitely seek an attorney. Housing shouldve been aware of this as well.
