Yonkers house of horrors condemned after resident dies
A house of horrors in Yonkers was condemned by the city after a man found lying in his own feces and infested with maggots died.
Paramedics responded to the house on Warburton Avenue on Sunday after 63-year-old Michael Link complained of shortness of breath. Link died Monday at the hospital. Link?s brother, who also lived in the house, is reportedly undergoing psychiatric treatment.
The home was so filthy it made firefighters physically ill. Police entered the house wearing hazmat suits because conditions were so bad. The city now wants the house torn down, but has not set a date for the demolition.
