Schaffhausen House to be Auctioned Off

  • Written by Tony Hart

(7/5/13) The house in River Falls where Aaron Schaffhausen killed his three daughters will be auctioned off in a sheriff's foreclosure sale on August 13th.

Schaffhausen defaulted on a mortgage he took out last March. That was two months after he divorced his wife and moved to North Dakota – and four months before he slashed his daughters Amara, Sophie, and Cecilia. Schaffhausen will be sentenced July 15th to three life prison terms, after a jury found him guilty on three counts of first-degree intentional homicide and attempted arson. Meanwhile, a fund-raiser is planned July 20th for a playground in honor of the Schaffhausen children. A motorcycle run will start in River Falls and make several stops, ending with a poker game.
