No bids for Schaffhausen house at auction


The River Falls home where three young girls were killed by their father, Aaron Schaffhausen, garnered no bids at a sheriff's auction Tuesday.

The Star Tribune reports ownership of the property on the 2700 block of Morningside Ave. will revert to Affinity Plus Credit Union of St. Paul.

Schaffhausen, 36, pleaded guilty to the July 2012 murder of sisters 11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie and 5-year-old Cecilia and attempted an insanity defense that was later rejected by a jury in April.

He received a maximum sentence of three consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole last month.

The River Falls community has been rallying around the girl's mother and Schaffhausen's ex-wife, Jessica Schaffhausen, during the trial.

Last month, a run and walk raised nearly $50,000 and drew about 1,250 people for a proposed playground project.

About $80,000 of the $555,000 needed for the project has been raised so far.
