A man from Sutton Coldfield, whose house was ripped apart when it became the centre of a historical murder investigation says it's been a living hell.
In October 2018, Met police officers dug large holes at the property, which once belonged to the mother of the prime suspect.
Detectives found no evidence relating to the suspected murder of Suzy Lamplugh, more than three decades earlier.
Phil Carey told us months later, many parts of the house are still unlivable.
