House where 3 sisters were killed to be auctioned

The River Falls house where three young girls were killed by their father will go back to the bank after no one placed a bid on the foreclosed property.

An auction for the Schaffhausen property was held Tuesday at the St. Croix County Government Center. KSTP-TV reports about five people attended the auction, but no one placed a bid on the house.

The home is where 11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie and 5-year-old Cecilia Schaffhausen were killed by Aaron Schaffhausen last year. He’s serving life in prison.

He tried to sell the house after killing the girls, but their mother, Jessica Schaffhausen objected because he would have profited from the sale.
