“I’m angry,” Hodgson said in an interview with The Associated Press. Even though it happened last month, she is still in shock. “I still wake up every night with a fresh start and hope it doesn’t happen.”
A neighbor called her while she was on vacation and asked if she had hired a company to demolish the house, which was vacant but being maintained. “I said no, and she said the whole house had just been demolished.” When the neighbor asked the demolition workers if they knew what they were doing, they told her, “Shut up and mind your own business.”
Hodgson sent a relative to have a look. When they checked the permit, they concluded they were at the wrong address. “Then they just left,” Hodgson says.
No apology, nothing
She never heard from them again. “How can people tear down someone’s property and then walk away,” Hodgson said. “How could they think it was okay? Why didn’t they apologize and find a solution with me?”
Hodgson has filed a police report against the company entitled “You Call It We Haul It” and has spoken to lawyers. “We’re still trying to figure out what to do,” she says. In a statement to WAGA-TV, the company said it was investigating the incident and working to find a solution.
