Knowlton spoke to 13WHAM News over the phone on Monday and explained that much had been going on behind the scenes over the last few months. Knowlton put the property up for sale, he said he had numerous potential buyers contact him, and he said that he has a pending sale with one of those buyers that could be finalized in the next couple of weeks.
