Annual property taxes will run $15,525.89, and an additional $3,200 a year in rent goes to Babylon because the 100-by-178-foot land the home sits on is owned by the town.
Shannan Gilbert, 24, of Jersey City, was last seen May 1, 2010, running from the home. Her disappearance sparked the discovery of 10 bodies in the Gilgo Beach area. Gilbert had been summoned by homeowner Joseph Brewer, who police say is not a suspect.
