Confessed Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad's Connecticut home put on auction block for $213K

The Connecticut home of the man accused of trying to detonate a car bomb in Times Square went on the block Saturday but didn't find a bidder. "I wanted to buy it and fix it up for my grandson, but I could build this house for $100,000," Phillip Plante, a local resident told the New Haven Register.

The bank that foreclosed on the modest, two-story home in Shelton, Conn., where confessed bomber Faisal Shahzad lived with his family, hoped to recoup the $213,000 mortgage. Shahzad stopped making payments on the 1,300-square-foot home last summer - right around the time authorities believe he went to Pakistan for terrorism training.One potential bidder
