American rough sleeper inherits significant windfall


A man in the American state of Utah was tracked by a private investigator in June, so he could receive a “significant” amount of money.

Max Melitzer, in his sixties, was sleeping rough in Salt Lake City, and was found by the private eye who had been hired by a law firm in New York. Although he knew of his brother’s death, it was only on 18 June that he found out he was a beneficiary in his brother’s will. When found, he had little more than the shopping trolley he was pushing that held his few belongings.
