Kansas home of Clutters to be sold

HOLCOMB, Kan. (AP) — The site of the infamous Clutter family murders near Garden City is up for sale through private auction.
The Clutter House in Holcomb is where Herbert Clutter, his wife and two children were found killed on Nov. 15, 1959 — the subject of Truman Capote's “In Cold Blood” and movies.
Richard Hickcock and Perry Smith broke into the home and shot Clutter; his wife, Bonnie; their daughter, Nancy, 16; and their son, Kenyon, 15. They were hanged in 1965.
The house is currently owned by Donna and Leonard Mader, who have said people from all over the world have shown up at the house after reading Capote’s book, prompting them at one point to charge a small fee for a tour.
