At first glance, the white house on Ferguson Street in Detroit looks like any other home commonly found in American suburbs. It’s front lawn is mowed and decorated with thick green shrubbery. Its peaked roof is covered in gray shingles.
The interior, however, is another story.
Video footage shows dark rooms cluttered with garbage. While some windows allow sunlight in, others are boarded up with large wooden planks. Once-white walls are yellowed, bare patches exposed where paint used to be. In the corner of one bedroom, a gaping hole in the floor goes straight to the house’s basement.
It was through this hole that authorities say 11-month-old Ca’Mya Davis fell and died on July 6, a couple weeks before her first birthday.
