    It's the story that's never been told on television. The story of Jackie Baucom, the estranged wife of David "Slim" Baucom, the owner of a number successful strip clubs in the Charlotte region. Her husband, most recently, has been tied to the Former Mayor of Charlotte, Patrick Cannon. Cannon pled guilty to corruption charges, and admitted to taking bribes from an area club owner.

    It's been a long road for Jackie Baucom. A marriage to a powerful Charlotte strip club owner, the victim of domestic abuse, life as a swinger, and the challenge of starting over.

Just before her husband passed away three years ago, Polly Wright decided to move into a town home at Magnolia Place in Lowell. But every time she walks out her back door, there is a large dirt retaining wall, that she fears will collapse. Wright said "You move in here thinking you have a a nice place to live, but you live with the fear of that wall, and the trees tumbling down on you, and with some of these storms we're having."

This wall of dirt has been here as long as residents can remember. New homeowners like Lonnie Wilson say it's not only an eyesore, but a safety concern. Wilson said "It could fall in a big wind, and hit their houses - yes we could get another really bad rain, these three houses have already shoveled water out of their homes."

There are six lots that remain "undeveloped" in the community. But after the developer called it quits, the neighborhood remains under construction.

Lonnie has pictures of when a storm comes through, and mud fills up people's yard. They've reached out to the builder and the developer, but have had no luck. Now they are taking it to Lowell city council, in hopes of making a change.
