Lavelva Merritt, one of two people accused of stabbing and robbing Johns Hopkins researcher Stephen Pitcairn, was a resident of Pigtown until May of 2010.  Her former address:  1166 Washington Boulevard, in City Council District 9.  You can read more about the robbery and murder here.

Formerly owned by Section-8 slumlord Ronald Auth, the house went through foreclosure in May of this year, and is currently owned by JP Morgan Chase Bank in Jacksonville, Florida. Hopefully it will be sold to someone who will be a better neighbor.
