An apartment building in Harvey near where 6-year-old Ahlittia North’s body was found is no more. Crews tore down one of the blighted buildings in the neighborhood Friday afternoon.

The Jefferson Parish Council approved the demolition on the Woodmere apartment complex at 2636 Destrehan Avenue. Deputies found Ahlittia’s body just steps away at 2836 Destrehan.

Matthew Flugence confessed to murdering Ahlittia. Flugence is her step-father’s nephew, who sometimes looked after the child.
