No Bidders for Earl Bradley’s Foreclosed Lewes Home
Michael Lopardi, WBOC
The former home of pedophile pediatrician Earl Bradley received no bids during a foreclosure auction Tuesday.
Opening bids for the property on Savannah Road in Lewes started at $230,000. None of the roughly two dozen people in attendance raised their hands.
The house was one of roughly 50 properties auctioned as part of foreclosure sales. Records show Bradley owes U.S. Bank more than $560,000.
“I would think anyone in this area would maybe shy away from buying that piece of property,” said deputy sheriff Tina Timmons. “We really don’t know.”
Bradley is serving 14 life sentences for sexually abusing young patients at his former medical office.
Timmons said the sheriff’s office received about a dozen calls – mostly from out-of-state numbers with people likely unfamiliar with Bradley – inquiring about the house. With no bidders, the property reverts back to the bank. An attorney for the bank did not answer questions after the auction.
