Ok... I too have been simply fascinated with this case and its participants. I first read about the case as a 10 year old when I sneaked into a Cosmo and read the snippets of "Blood and Money". As I recall, they had other additional pictures that were not included in the book. I've read the book as a teenager and again as an adult, and I've visited most of the sites involved (grave, both houses on Kirby, etc.) As an aside, Ash's house was a really nice, mid century home. It was likely quite modern and innovative at the time, and I think was red brick. It now looks ultra modern...all white with dark windows. It doesn't look a thing like the original after it was redone. I've always wanted to see inside the Hill house and see the music room. I clicked on the real estate photos, but they don't seem to still be active (although I could have done it incorrectly). Does anyone have the photos that could share? Finally, I would buy the ticket and go to the Halloween benefit, but I'm out of town that weekend. I hope they continue so I can attend! Does anyone have pics or know if you can actually see inside the entire home?
Kiekie, This is my first post on this forum. I feel the same way that you do in that I thought I was the only one obsessed with this case. Glad to know there are others. I now live in PA but lived in Houston from 83 through 93. At one point when I first moved there, I worked in the River Oaks area. My friend and I decided to have a day where we just explored all of the areas, or as many as possible, pertaining to this case. We saw Joan's house, Ash's house, went to the pharmacy where Dr. Hill possibly bought someting to induce vomiting, we went to the grave too and just did all kinds of weird things since I was so into this case. i have pictures of me at the grave and it did not have a tree growing on it at that time but that has been at least 15 years ago. Anyhow, just wanted to respond to this. I just signed up in order to do so! I have been "homesick" for Houston lately due to it being on the news because of Ike. Hope all of you who live there are OK. My thoughts are often of Houston and of this case too.
Thanks to all that included original pictures and newspaper articles. It is fascinating, and I'm glad to have found my way to this commentary.
