From a valuable blog called Squatter City (and by the author of a recent book by the same name):

Attention squatters: Detroit has 12,000 abandoned homes and 36 square miles of vacant land. What’s more, in a shocking tidbit, the dean of the University of Detroit’s school of architecture asserts that families are exhuming 400 to 500 bodies a year from local graveyards and reburying them in suburban cemeteries. All because of the fear of crime when coming to visit a relative’s grave.

  2. Forget the squatters, I say we kidnap some of the cadavers and ransom them to pay for community development schemes. After all, unclaimed property accrues to whoever holds it. Teh former tenant who leaves his possessions in my house cannot expect to collect them a year later. There may be a fee involved.

    dereliction is a verb
