It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but for some, it’s an equally terrifying time of year. On December 6th, 1959, neighbors in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles awoke to the sound of Judye Perelson screaming and pounding on their door with blood-slicked hands. When police arrived on the scene at the Perelson's house, they found Lillian Perelson dead on the bed and her husband,  Harold Perelson, also dead from a massive drug overdose — an apparent suicide. But even after Harold Perelson was long gone and the surviving Perelson family members had moved across the country, their home stayed empty for decades. Though it’s passed through a few different owners over the years, there are rumors that the house is more than just a memorial to that tragic December night in 1959 — some say it’s haunted. Join us as we take a tour of the Los Feliz Murder Mansion.
