The DeFreeze family is holding a news conference Friday to implore the City of Cleveland to tear down the abandoned house on Fuller Avenue where Alianna DeFreeze was murdered in 2017.
The “Alianna DeFreeze Let’s Make a Change Foundation” is holding the news conference at 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 7. The initiative is for the house on Fuller Ave. to be torn down.
After Aliana’s murder, Cleveland launched an initiative to demolish abandoned homes around the city, targeting more than 500 homes near CMSD schools.
A News 5 investigation in October found the city has made progress, demolishing properties at 599 locations. However, News 5 investigators found that many vacant homes near private schools remain standing and are still a threat to students.
