Summary Baltimore Sun reporter James Haner "spent a year and a half in a slum enclave of East Baltimore known as 'Zombieland.'" With the use of a variety of public and proprietary databases, the Sun created an in-house database which "allowed Haner to establish links among slum landlords, drug dealers, urban decay and lead-poisoned children." The stories found in this series look at some of the individual drug lords in the area as well as the housing problems.
