  • The house in River Falls where Aaron Schaffhausen killed his three daughters will be auctioned off in a sheriff’s foreclosure sale Aug. 13.
    Schaffhausen defaulted on the mortgage in March 2012. That was two months after he and his wife divorced and he moved to Minot, N.D. -- and four months before he killed his daughters, Amara, Sophie and Cecilia.
    Schaffhausen stopped making payments on the mortgage in January 2012, leaving $181,000 unpaid.
    He’ll be sentenced July 15. In April a jury rejected his insanity defense. He had earlier pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree intentional homicide and attempted arson.
    Meanwhile, a fundraiser is planned July 20 for a playground in honor of the Schaffhausen children. A motorcycle run will start in River Falls and make several stops, ending with a poker game.
