The City of Industry has closed off a house after
investigators looking into building code violations uncovered a labyrinth of
tunnels and rooms beneath it. Sheriff's deputies are now trying to figure
out what could have been going on.
Story and pictures
Walk into the home on 17446 Renault St. and immediately your mind starts to
wander to places normally only seen in horror movies. There are trap doors
in the floor and tunnels to hidden chambers.
The home has dark, dangerous places even one of the home's owners wonders
the worst about. She asked Eyewitness News not to be identified, but spoke
with John Gregory.
"What do you think is going on in those rooms?" asked Gregory.
"Lot of things. A lot of things. I mean, I have a sister that's up the
street right now, and she's not mentally there. I have another sister, she
has no life. The other one just went to jail, a brother, about a month ago.
He just went to jail for being back there, in the home," said the woman.
The woman doesn't live in the home, but her father did. For now, her fears
and suspicions are only that. The father was renting the property out, and
those occupants have been evicted.
