There was minimal furniture on the first floor and the third floor had a some more furniture plus a bed. There was also food in the bedroom. Some of the food included rotten meat.

Sources tell 19 Action News that there were piles of clothes everywhere, some of which was women's clothing.

The smell of death was laced throughout the entire home, that's what was inside of the house of horror on Imperial Avenue.
