Back to Los Feliz

 

So the other day when I posted about the Los Feliz Murder House, I had not actually gone to the location yet, and was waiting for a day off. Well, like most normal people, I grabbed my cup of coffee, loaded up the Ch’en Chariot and went over to the Los Feliz neighborhood.

While driving up to the house, I was taken aback by this amazing little house! It had a sign on the gate, “Witches Garden”,  that did not look as if it was just residual Halloween decor, but a high-quality signage made for such an appropriately named gem in the hills.

    1. Hey! I actually just wrote about it a few posts back, but the story goes as follow: on the night of December 6, 1959, Dr. Harold Perelson, a wealthy Inglewood heart specialist, bludgeoned his wife, Lillian, to death with a ball-peen hammer and then severely beat his 18-year-old daughter, Judye, while his other two children slept soundly in their bedrooms.  Judye luckily survived the beating and ran down the hill to their neighbor’s home to call for help.  In the meantime, the two younger children woke up and asked their father about all of the screaming.  Harold told the children that they must have been having a bad dream and that they needed to go back to sleep. He then proceeded to drink a glass of acid, killing himself instantly.  Shortly thereafter, the police showed up and took all three Perelson children into custody. The house was locked up and the children were sent to live with relatives back east.  The motives behind the horrendous event was never fully determined, but most claim that Harold was under financial distress.

      1. Oh my goodness! I will have to take a look at the house the next time I’m in the immediate area. Thank you for sharing the story. Sorry for not going back to your previous posts. I just going through Los Angeles stuff and came across your most recent post and it caught my attention. Thanks!

      2. Of course! I just learned about this the other week. I couldn’t believe I’d never heard of it before, especially with the Ennis House so close. I hope you enjoy the visit!
