Zooey Deschanel - Zooey Deschanel Had No Intention Of Buying Black Dahlia House

Actress Zooey Deschanel has laughed off rumours she is interested in purchasing Los Angeles' historic John Sowden House, after she was photographed viewing the site of the infamous Black Dahlia murder.

The (500) Days of Summer star was spotted at the Los Feliz property with her boyfriend, screenwriter Jamie Linden, and a broker in March (13), sparking speculation they were considering putting in an offer to buy the stunning five-bedroom pad, where Dr. George Hodel allegedly tortured and killed 22-year-old Elizabeth Short, aka Black Dahlia, in January, 1947.

However, Deschanel insists they had no such intention - and were only checking out the house to view the work of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, who built it in 1926.

She tells Marie Claire magazine, "We saw it just to see a Lloyd Wright house. Just because you go see a house doesn't mean you're going to buy it."

The recognisable mansion, listed in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and posted on the market in February (13) for $4.89 million (£3.26 million), has previously featured in Martin Scorsese's 2004 movie The Aviator and was used as the residence of Timothy Dalton's character Neville Sinclair in 1991 film The Rocketeer.

The Black Dahlia crime remains one of the oldest unsolved murder cases in Los Angeles history.
