The Moscow murder house was demolished in December 2023 after its owner donated it to the university.

“This is a healing step and removes the physical structure where the crime that shook our community was committed,” the school said of the planned demolition in February 2023. “The demolition also removes efforts to make the crime scene even more sensational to make. We are evaluating options where students can be involved in the future development of the property.”
