Whatever Happened To...

Accused murder suspects' Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes bought the infamous bordello at 1028 Stratem Court, Virginia Beach, Virginia around 10/19/2005 for over $540,000.00. After their arrest on May 15, 2007, Harlow and Joe later tried to sell the house with several different prices:

08/19/07 - $679,000.00
11/10/07 - $699,000.00
12/20/07 - $471,900.00

Then on May 4, 2008... it was reported here that the house was removed from the market... but it wasn't sold.

What did become of the bordello?

Well... according to Virginia Beach real estate records, Harlow and Joe still own it... court records also show that there have not been any foreclosure proceedings.

So... is the house now a rental... is someone else paying the mortgage and not living there... are Harlow or Joe's family members living there?

...these are all good questions and I'll post the answer tomorrow... meanwhile, what are your theories?

After driving out to Birdneck Woods... I can confirm that the house is still being lived in - though no one answered the door, there was a newspaper (today's) on the porch... and the lawn appears to have been recently mowed. A reliable source also tells me that the house is indeed being rented - now the question is to whom? Stay tuned...

Update 2: 10/15/08:

I drove back out this evening, and arrived at the house at 8:32 PM... no lights on, no cars in the drive and no newspaper at the doorstep - sadly no pictures this time since my camera can't seem to take a picture in the dark to save it's life (POS).
