A Cleveland house trailer at the center of a gang rape investigation that shocked the nation has been reduced to a pile of rubble.

The city of Cleveland tore down the structure on Ross Avenue this week. It had been scheduled for demolition even before it became the scene of multiple sexual assaults, allegedly committed against an 11-year-old girl back in 2010.

Twenty-one men, including seven juveniles, face charges in that case. Many of them have accepted plea deals.
