Bonita Springs murder home listed for auction
In 2015, Dr. Teresa Sievers was beaten to death with a hammer in her home. Her husband, Mark Sievers, was accused of orchestrating her murder. Their home is the largest piece of evidence in the case.
The Bonita Springs home where Dr. Sievers was killed has been listed for auction at more than $460,000 Thursday.
WINK News was able to visit the home and go inside. Mark’s step-mother was there cleaning out personal belongings from the former married couples’ home that became a crime scene. The house has been empty almost four years.
Mark is accused of plotting Sievers’ death, hiring childhood friend Curtis Wayne Wright and and another man, Jimmy Rodgers, to carry out the murder.
Sievers still awaits trial while his old home, now known as the “House of Horrors” by neighbors, becomes available for new homeowners.
Hopeful buyers may not know about its history because state law does not require homeowners to disclose if murder happened in a home when selling a property.
The listing for the home is on the Lee County Clerk of Clerks foreclosure website.
