Inside abandoned house of horrors owned by serial killer Stephen Brian Pennell

A video has emerged showing inside a house of horrors which was once owned by one of the most notorious serial killers in America.

Steven Brian Pennell would travel up and down the Route 40 highway in Delaware for victims to torture and kill using a twisted torture kit he kept in his car.

Finally caught in November 1988, the married electrician and dad-of-two was convicted of abducting and murdering two women whilst being suspected of killing three others,

He was the only serial killer in the US to ever ask to be executed for his crimes.

In a video shared on Instagram, which has over 5,100 likes, video clips showed the rundown care and the rotting house which was been discovered frozen in time and filled with creepy kids' dolls.

The clip shows a murky green coloured car with smashed windows still parked on the driveway outside of a vine-strewn clapperboard home with ready-made beds upstairs.

The dolls were still dressed up, but now covered in dust and faded by the sun next to an aged Bible.

The wallpaper has begun peeling away from the wall from mould as rubbish has been left all over the floor.

The explorer, who posts as @places_forgotten said: "I do a lot of photography of abandoned houses in the States.

"It was quite an eerie place because it's in the middle of nowhere, and it's just crazy how everything has been left on display.

"Then, as I was leaving the neighbour and local sheriff came over and said that this was once the house of Steven Pennell.

"I had no idea who he was but he was Delaware's only known serial killer and this was apparently where he killed one or two of his victims.

"Apparently it's been left like this for many years. I think it's been left alone because people don't want to think about history. The place has a very sinister feel to it."

The news comes after the home of serial killer John Wayne Gacy was shown in the new Netflix documentary Conversations with a Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes.

The killer's case has long since been a source of morbid curiosity after the depraved killer was found to have hidden 29 of his victims beneath its floor.

The house of horrors in Des Plaines, Illinois, was torn down in 1979 and now an entirely new home stands in its stead. Yet it's never quite been able to shake off its macabre past.

With the programming going into excruciating detail as the killer himself speaks, it's hard to imagine the outward façade he played at the time – especially with such a strange and grim home.
