When property manager Ryan Froerer got a call from a realtor to check on a townhouse, he knew something was up. “It was the sickest thing I’ve ever seen. Just unimaginable that someone could live in that.” He couldn’t even open the front door. It was blocked from inside.As he finally entered the house, he found about 70,000 empty beer cans.
Inside, he took just a few snapshots to document the scene. Beer cans by the tens of thousands. Mountains of cans burying the furniture. Froerer e-mailed his photos to a couple of friends, who sent them to friends, and so the news spread through the internet.
