Squatters trash stolen home prior to eviction
From Eyewitness News:
A Queens woman who had her family home stolen in a phony deed scam is finally back inside the house, but the condition it was left in made for anything but a happy reunion.
A city marshal armed with an eviction order broke the lock of Jennifer Merin's home in Laurelton Monday morning, a lock put there by squatters months ago.
Escorted by investigators from the sheriff's office, the 70-year-old Merin finally got back inside to see what was left behind. And the mess wasn't pretty.
"It feels like they've really trampled on the graves of my family," she said.
