Infamous Address – 3514 North Marshall Street

Strange odors sometimes wafted from this dilapidated house in the Tioga section of North Philadelphia, smells that neighbors likened to burning flesh. Then there were the odd noises: hammering at all hours, and what sounded like an electric saw and other power tools. Heavy-metal music blared day and night. But no one suspected the horrors that Philadelphia police discovered back in 1987.
