PARK CITY, Kan. (AP) -- The house where one of the victims of the BTK serial killer was murdered has sold at auction for far less than its appraised value.

KWCH-TV reports (http://bit.ly/17gIPQy ) that the Park City home sold Tuesday to the highest bidder for $35,000. The three-bedroom home had been appraised for about $60,000.

Auctioneer Jack Newcom reminded the crowd before the bidding started about the 1985 murder. Marine Hedge was killed in the house by Dennis Rader, the BTK killer who 20 years later was discovered to be her neighbor.

Among those who came to watch the bidding was Charlie Otero, whose parents and siblings were killed in a different house by Roeder.

Otero says he wanted to see this part of the BTK story put to an end.
