 The first thing you have to find out is if the house went through probate. It sounds like it might have but you want to see a Warranty Deed or a Special Warranty Deed instead of a Quite Claim Deed. I'd contact a Title Company and get a Prelim to see the recorded owner is. Also, depending on what you mean by "distressed" you should be aware that if they are in foreclosure certain steps must be taken. If it is simply a "fixer" you can send the owner a brief letter asking if they are interested in selling. If you don't get a response from a letter you can try door knocking and see if they open to talking.
