Description

KTVT-TV reports that "...This is a story like David and Goliath... Linda Jones lives in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Dallas. She pays her landlord most of her paycheck. What she gets for her $425 dollars a month is a house she claims she's scared to sleep in every night. Jones show us.. her house falling apart. She rattles cabinets that fall off at the slightest tug. She points to waterlogged shelving and the flecks of paint falling from the ceiling... the landlord won't fix the problems. .. Tenants claim the only time they see the landlord is when he comes by to pick up the rent. Where does he live? In a ritzy area in Dallas...."
