Today we are exploring the abandoned hunter's mansion in Chicago's suburbs worth $750,000 with a project car and stuffed bobcat left behind. I'm not sure what happened to this mansion or why everything was left to rot.

It appears based on newspapers they found lying around that the nearly three-quarters-of-a-million dollar home has been vacant since 2018. No explanation as to why it was just left to rot.
