    Another article. This one say's the city claimed the house due to the property taxes not being paid. Which is a little more believable than the bank not noticing the morgage was not being paid for four years.

    I wonder who was taking care of the lawn and snow removal. After four years the place had to look pretty bad. Mail piling up outside must not have alarmed anyone, not even the postman.

    Oh man, he even went to school in that town... that's just too sad for words. I feel awful for the young daughter, what a horrible circumstance to carry forward into her adulthood. I hope she gets some counseling, even if she thinks she doesn't need it. :cry:

    The 1st article mentions the city was taking care of the lawn and snow removal. They sent him a bill for $37,000 !

    I guess I should have looked at the first article closer. According to the caption on one of the pictures it said the city took care of the lawn and snow. Totaling a bill of $37,000.00.

    From what I have read Milwaukee is one of the poorest cities in the nation. Well maybe if they collected their taxes and other bills owed they wouldn't have these problems. You would surly think an investigation into how the city conducts it affairs will be done after the discovery of this mans body and the fact that his property taxes and bills for caring for his lawn and snow removal were left to go on for four years.

    In one story I read an alderman was claiming that the city couldn't afford to hire or pay for more police officers. But crimes like the gang-rape of an 11 year old girl by as many as 19 men are going on.

    You wouldn't think this is an isolated incident and their are many properties that the taxes are not being collected on. Perhaps if the city collected on their outstanding bills they could afford more police which would in turn curb crime.
