The apartment where former HOGAN'S HEROES star BOB CRANE was bludgeoned to death in 1978 has gone up for sale on the internet.

The still-unsolved murder in Scottsdale, Arizona, was chronicled in the Greg Kinnear and Willem Dafoe film Auto Focus. Now the two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment where it all occurred is for sale on auction website eBAY, with opening bidding at $180,000 (GBP120,000) - more than twice the going rate for similar apartments in the area.

Listing agent ARDY HAINES says, "There's a certain curiosity about it."

And the home isn't short of strange occurrences - Haines adds that toilets mysteriously flush by themselves at night and RON and PAT HERBST, who have lived in the house since 1986, used to feel "something" about the bed.

Haines says, "They never stayed in the apartment on June 29, the anniversary of Bob's death."
