DAILYKENN.com -- Take a look at the run-down slums of Philadelphia. Then consider that, at one time, the structures were new. Attractive new homes. Amazing new buildings.
Who developed Philadelphia's neighborhoods? Who destroyed them?
A white successful real estate developer was apparently stabbed in the back by a black delivery boy who fled on his bicycle as his victim lay dying on the pavement.
“When police first picked them up they were they were able to speak to him, he was conscious and talking, although he’s bleeding heavily from the back,” Small said.

Michael White, 20, is accused of killing 37-year-old Sean Schellenger during an incident that happened 20 hours before on Thursday just before 11 p.m. at the intersection of 17th and Chancellor Streets.Gregg Thompson of Philadelphia Peaceful Surrender said he spoke to White prior to his arrest.
“He said to me that it was a situation that got way out of control and that he felt extremely threatened by three gentlemen that were in the car,” Thompson said.
Other witnesses told police Schellenger was in the passenger seat of a car traveling on Chancellor, when he got out of the car and began arguing with a man on a bike.
“I came up and saw the guy bleeding on the floor and was going nuts trying to help him out,” said a witness who did not want to be identified. “A lot of people with blood on their hands.”
“That’s when the perpetrator pulled out a knife, described as a large knife, and stabbed the victim at least one time in the back,” said Chief Inspector Scott Small.
A friend of Schellenger described him as a successful real estate developer, who was very charitable and lived in the Rittenhouse area.
