Detroit's spectacular ruination continues, as police discover a new real-life Gothic trend. Killers are piling up corpses in abandoned plots.
Abandoned and neglected parts of Detroit are quickly becoming dumping grounds for the bodies of murder victims. And authorities acknowledge there’s little they can do.
At least a dozen bodies have turned up in 12 months, many of them purposely hidden or discarded in alleys, fields and vacant houses or garages. Seven of the dead are believed to have been slain outside Detroit and then dumped within the city.
It's not just physical decay:
Officer John Garner says a slaying may go unsolved because of the time it takes for the corpse to be found.
We've been tracking Detroit's Gothic ruination for years.
