Newsflash: FTHB (OH); Foreclosure that was an ecstasy drug lab where the prev. owner died.

We are first time home buyers and found a really awesome house (the house is decent; the land is fantastic!!). The house doesn’t appear to need much work and seems solidly built. Last night we did a second walk-through. House was under contract last week but fell through. Right before the walk-through our realtor finally got info from the listing agent. Part of the reason the existing deal fell through was because they found out the prior owner was found dead in the detached garage along with one of the largest ecstasy labs in Ohio. Personally, I don’t think that is a deal-breaker for me, but is that something that would be for others? Is this something we should consider when making an offer (get house for lower because it is “tainted”)?
