Homeless veteran returns to his abandoned family home

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A homeless marine veteran is back in his family home.

A housewarming ceremony was held for Lewis Morris Tuesday afternoon at his “new” home on north Arsenal Avenue.

Over the summer, neighbors contacted the city about a man living behind a city-owned property.

It was quickly discovered that the man was Morris and that the property used to be owned by his mother.

The city, with the help of the community and local businesses, fixed up the abandoned house and Morris is now back in the home.
