A Missouri woman is moving out of her home after she watched a TV program about serial killers and found out her basement was the site of a torture chamber.

But Catrina McGhaw initially had problems getting out of the lease with her landlord - the murder suspect's mother, reports KMOV-TV in St. Louis.

"She said 'no, you signed a lease, you need to stay there until the lease is up,' " McGhaw told the station.

McGhaw was not able to get out of her lease until housing authority officials got involved, KMOV reports.

While watching a documentary on A&E Network, McGhaw discovered that murder suspect Maury Travis had used her basement to torture and even record some of the incidents, according to KMOV.

It's unclear the exact number of victims, but police estimate Travis murdered between 12 and 20 women, ABC News reports. Travis killed himself in 2002 while in jail, according to ABC News.

Under Missouri law, there is no requirement to tell a tenant whether the home was a murder scene, KMOV reports.
