Thomas David Black has been known to steal from his own family for more than 20 years.
When Black’s wife and children were killed in the line of duty in the mid-1990s, the family’s belongings were scattered across a small, sprawling property in the northern suburbs of Philadelphia.
Black sold the property, which he later acquired for $250,000, and began rebuilding it.
Now, Black has bought a new house in Philadelphia that he plans to rent for $350 a month, which will give him an additional $250 per month.
The $250-per-month rent will also allow Black to pay off a mortgage on his house.
“I think I’ve built a pretty decent house, and I’m really looking forward to being able to take care of it,” Black told ABC News.
Thomas David’s new house is located in the same neighborhood as his family’s property, and the two houses have become a symbol of how much Black has changed.
In 2005, the Philadelphia Inquirer ran an article about the house Black is renting in the affluent neighborhood of Thorson Avenue.

As a former police officer, Black’s job involved tracking down and catching criminals.
His wife and family were killed while serving in the military in 1995, when Black and his partner, Officer Michael Thomas, were shot to death while trying to stop an armed robbery at a gas station.
While Black was trying to save the couple, Thomas was shot and killed.
Then, in 1997, Black and Thomas were fatally shot when Thomas’ partner, Michael Jackson, opened fire on Black and Black’s partner, Corporal Andrew T. Davis, during a botched traffic stop.
Thomas and Davis were also both former police officers, and Black has said that Thomas’ death was the result of a botched police traffic stop and that Davis’ was the direct result of Black’s actions.
Following the deaths of their partners, Black decided to move into his own neighborhood.
Although he has kept his old job as a police officer and his former home as his home, Black says that he is no longer willing to stay in the neighborhood where his family and the neighborhood he calls home were murdered.
After Black sold his home to his family, he started renovating his property and began to remodel his own home.
At first, Black said he only planned to remodels the home once or twice a year.
But Black says he has since purchased a second home in the Philadelphia area.
He plans to remodeled the second home several times a year to keep it in the style he likes, and he plans on keeping it in that same style, even though he has not always liked the decor of the new home.
But Black said that he has found the remodeling process to be challenging.
According to Black, he and his wife had to get creative with the remodel process because they were not familiar with how the building and the house looked before Black bought the property.
And although Black has always liked to make sure that the new property he is remodeling is a great looking house, Black was unsure about whether the new remodel would be as functional as the old remodel, Black told the Philadelphia Daily News.
Black plans to pay for his remodel on his own.
Once Black and the rest of the family move into the new house, he said he will pay the $350 rent to the landlord.
It is unclear if Black plans to do anything about the rental bill.
