Trip back to the age of excess, and see the eventual result.

Makes me sick that a house that huge is just rotting away.

It is a shame that is rotting, but someone had to spend alot of money to remove that ugly decor.

You don't want to know what poor Glass Joe is doing these days.

Mike Tyson's Abandoned Mansion sounds like it would've been a pretty good NES game, though.

You say that, but the attic level is a total bitch.

I know. It's a beautiful house. (If horribly decorated. "Zebra striped carpet?")

It's a shame that it's just sitting there like that and will gradually deteriorate and thieves will likely break in and ransack it eventually.

Jesus, that's just a shame...both the zebra striped carpet and the fact that the house has been abandoned for almost 10 years.

At least it sounds better then Mike Tyson's Rape Trial. Talk about boring and predictable.

It's Ohio, though, so someone will buy it. This new automobile industry should produce plenty of tycoons who can storm right in and snap up this lovely mansion. Mark my words.

Maybe Lebron can move there.

Wow, the way they busted the previous owner sounds fishy.

Nonetheless, great looking house. I'm surprised bums don't live there in style.

I can't believe high school delinquents haven't ransacked that place yet.

Who watches a TV mounted that high? No wonder why he got his ass kicked later in his career; the guy couldn't keep his chin tucked to his chest since his neck was permanently in a 45 degree position from all his television watching.

What I find amazing is that the doors were OPENED. Not just unlocked, but OPENED. That is odd. Also, all of that electronic equipment laying around. I know it is WAY out of date and all, but man, I am just shocked that no one has pilfered it yet. (After that post, I have no doubt someone will though.)

Also, there HAS to be more to the story than an FBI agent saying that they are a drug dealer. Wouldn't that be entrapment? I didn't even know it was a crime to sell something to a drug dealer. Maybe an accessory to the crime? Curiosity may force me to do a half-hearted internet search, get bored with that, have a light snack, then take a nap...
