Eerie new footage shows the Tony Martin’s abandoned house – almost 20 years after he notoriously shot a robber dead.
An urban explorer says he looked around the empty mansion and claims to have found animal bones hanging from the ceiling.
Tony Martin, a farmer from Norfolk, was convicted of murder in August 1999 after shooting burglar Fred Barras, 16, dead in his home.
He later had his sentence reduced to manslaughter on grounds of diminished responsibility.
His former mansion and farm outbuildings, which stand together on a plot of land in Emneth Hungate, Norfolk, appear to have remained empty for many years.
The 74-year-old now lives at a different secret address.
The clip follows YouTuber Abandoned World Explorer UK as he makes his way around the eerie house whilst on holiday with a few friends in June.
His video gives a tour around the property showing the house covered in overgrown plants and grass.
Walking around the abandoned house, the explorer stumble across piles of unidentified bones lying around in the bathroom.
As they continue upstairs, they discover a room with animal bones hanging from the ceiling on pieces of string.
It’s not clear how the bones got on the pieces of string but there were another pile of bones on the floor beneath them.
Footage shows how cars were left to rot in a damp garage and other farm vehicles are left abandoned in high grass.
The explorer said: "We spotted the house whilst on holiday and decided to explore it without realising whose house it was.
"The bones around the place made the house seem like it was something out of Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
"They were hung up like decorations and looking like a spider web.
"I don’t think I will be going back, I felt so intimidated and scared whist we were there.
"To me the most interesting thing I saw was the classic MK1 Range Rover in the garage and the hanging bones.
"I film abandoned places all the time and realised this one seemed a little odd."
Before the killing, Martin had complained the the police had not done enough after he had been burgled at least 10 times.
At least £6,000 worth of furniture had been stolen, he claimed.
Fred Barras and Brendan Fearon were armed with a baseball bat and a chisel when they broke into his home on August 20, 1999.
Martin blasted them three times with an illegal pump action shot gun.
Both fled through a window but Barras died on the grounds of the now abandoned mansion.
In 2001, Martin had his sentence reduced on appeal and was released in 2003.
The case sparked a national debate about whether or not he had used excessive force while protecting his home.
