One of the two nogs who killed six people including three Whites by recklessly destroying a building is trying to get free.
This would never have happened if the company which did the demolition didn’t have to hire diversity picks.
Kim Lee doesn’t visit the corner of 22nd and Market streets in Center City very often. In fact, she avoids it.
Her husband, Griffin Campbell, is the former demolition contractor slapped with a 15- to 30-year prison sentence for the infamous 2013 Salvation Army building collapse. In civil court, Campbell was determined to have played a small role in the accident. He was later found guilty of six counts of involuntary manslaughter during a criminal trial.
“My husband was one of the heroes,” Lee recently told NBC10. “He was the first one on the scene.”
It has been almost five years since that unforgettable day when a mushroom plume of smoke and debris filled Center City. Six people died and more than a dozen were injured. A memorial plaque now replaces the former thrift store, perpetually condemning the “reckless demolition” that caused those deaths.
Three of the White victims.
