This old house

    When we brought you yesterday the news of a woman’s body found in an abandoned Kensington home, we didn’t share another piece of the story: that home was somewhat inhabitable not too long ago.


    Take a look at this photo Action News has of the current state of the homes on the 1900-block of East Sterner Street. Now compare that with this Google street view photo.

    We can’t be sure when the street view shot was taken, but it can’t be more than a few years ago.
