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.
