Savage Sandy Springs House-Killing Caught on Camera

Death came swiftly to Glenridge Hall. From high above Abernathy Road, the 11 Alive team captured the scene Thursday as the 84-year-old matriarch of Sandy Springs was battered to death with bulldozers and front-end loaders. One of the few remaining vestiges of early Sandy Springs — and one of only two properties in the city included on the National Register of Historic Places — the Tudor manor succumb to "progress" (pronounced: "greed and shortsightedness"), making way for the ironic rise of a faux English Village. For those who like rubbernecking car wrecks, you'll find photos of the carnage after the jump. And for the record, there was nothing dignified about it.
