The Eggleston family was not allowed to live in their home again after the day of the shooting because the county protected it as a crime scene. A load-bearing wall was removed by the county. However, it was severely vandalized.
Linda Eggleston's father built the two-bedroom house in 1949 and gave it to Linda in 1977.
Eventually, after the third trial, Linda sold the house to a developer. It was burned down by the fire department as a training exercise.
