The I-Team spent two months following inspectors in the field, documenting properties across the city. The team did a computer records search of all properties in the city marked for demolition and found thousands of addresses, some with demolition orders going back over 5-years that are continuing to litter the city. They also found people living in deplorable conditions surrounded by raw sewage, garbage, syringes, rats and even snakes in the walls.
