Ken Weitzner Home

The Chesapeake, Virginia home of Kenneth Weitzner has sold for around $900K this week.

Weitzner, who founded the popular sports betting portals TheRx.com and EOG..com, committed suicide along with his wife last May through the use of sleeping pills and a charcoal grill.  The 2128  Hickory Forest Drive home is now rumored to be haunted. 

Weitzner took his own life after falling deep in debt from gambling.  His wife, Jackie, who was also a grandmother of small children, reportedly came up with the idea to commit the double suicide as she refused to “live the life of a pauper”.

The home was originally built by Weitzner with a land and construction cost close to 2 million dollars nearly 10 years ago.
