    This house at 2475 Glendower Place is known as the Murder House because a man killed his wife there in 1959. It went up for sale for $2.75 million in March 2016.

    The "murder house" mystery is solved.

    The new buyers of the spooky, haunted house in Los Angeles that has been the stuff of legend for decades are celebrity attorney Gloria Allred's daughter Lisa Bloom and her husband Braden Pollock, the The Los Angeles Times reported. 

    They paid about $2.3 million for the four-bedroom mansion at 2475 Glendower Place in Los Feliz.

    It was the scene of a murder in 1959 when Dr. Harold N. Perelson bludgeoned his wife to death with a hammer and attacked his 18-year-old daughter before killing himself.

    Bloom used to anchor a legal news program on truTv called "Lisa Bloom: Open Court." She is a legal analyst for NBC News. 

    Nancy Sanborn, the realtor of the property, said Tuesday that a couple purchased the home in a probate sale last month. She did not name the buyers, only saying that they really wanted to buy the house.

    The "murder house" has become the center of morbid fascination, sparking ghost hunters to ruminate about it online.

    After the Perelsons, another family bought the home in probate in the early 1960s. When they died, the son inherited it from his parents but he didn't live there. The last owner died last year and the home went to probate again. The house went up for sale last week, said Sanborn.

    Some claim they've seen the ghost of Dr. Perelson.
