If it went to auction, her house was probably purchased by the mortgage company. That's typically how it works - the foreclosure is cried, the mortgage company makes an opening bid at their appraisal value, no one else bids, and the auction is closed with the holder of the mortgage taking title.
She's also only been in the house for about a year. That's usually how long it actually takes to go from default to foreclosure (it can theoretically be done in as little as 90-120 days, but practically speaking, it takes 9-12 months). It makes me wonder if she ever made a payment on the property.

Neighborhood rumor is that it is a City Market concept higher-end grocery store.
I think you're forgetting to mention that East Lake Meadows was demolished in 1995, explaining the crime drop.
It's actually a federal regulation, though the states can (and should) limit it to 2 years post-conviction. Just one more misguided drug policy.
