Now, when she was about to decide on repairs of her damaged house, another calamity struck. This time a man-made one.
Billy L. Nabors Demolition of Seagoville came to tear down a house one block away from Diaz’s on Wednesday.
But the map that showed which building to demolish had instead the Diaz’s house marked on it, according to a WFAA report.
Sure enough, the company followed through and leveled the duplex house Diaz owned together with Alan Cutter.
On Tuesday afternoon Diaz said she received a frantic call from Cutter’s wife saying the house was gone.
“How do you make a mistake like this?” Diaz told WFAA. “I mean, this is just the worst.”
She said she filled out a report with Rowlett police.
