A 101-year-old Detroit woman is shocked getting evicted from the Detroit home in which she has lived for the past 58 years.
In a wheelchair and suffering from high blood pressure, Texana Hollis was left sitting on the sidewalk with her furniture and belongings.
The worst part? Texana and her late husband owned their home free-and-clear having paid off the mortgage years ago. So what happened?
In 2003, Texana’s son-of-the-year candidate Warren Hollis convinced his mother to take out a “reverse mortgage” for $32,000 so they could make some repairs on her home.
But that money went to more than just the house. Warren admits he bought a car, made a donation to the church and spent the remaining five thousand dollars on other things.
Warren also admits he didn’t pay the bill for several years and disregarded eviction notices.
Now, Texana Hollis is being cared for at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. She was rushed by ambulance to the hospital on Monday, suffering from severe anxiety (go figure).
Texana’s home now belongs to HUD, The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Multiple organizations are stepping in to try and assist Texana Hollis.
