Homeless Man Inherits Fortune

Homeless Man Inherits Fortune
Homeless Man Inherits Fortune. A homeless man received some life-changing news this weekend when he was tracked down by a private investigator and told that he had inherited a 'significant' fortune. Impoverished Max Melitzer, who is in his 60s, is now richer thanks to his brother leaving him a fair amount of money in his will. The man, who had lost touch with his relatives, was found by private investigator David Lundberg, pushing a shopping trolley with his life possessions across a park in Salt Lake City, Utah.

It took investigators two months to trace Melitzer and tell him the good news that he had money coming to him. Lundberg was asked by a New York law firm working on behalf of the family to find the homeless man following the death of his brother from cancer last year.

Now wealthy, Melitzer - who has been living homeless for several years - had not been contactable since last September.

After the trail went cold, the search to find Melitzer was reported live to Utah's KSL TV viewers. A tip-off from a local rescue mission worker then led the private eye to Melitzer's existence at the park.

The exact sum of money inherited remains undisclosed, but Lundberg assures that it was enough for him to live a normal life off the streets.

Speaking to The Associated Press, Lundberg said: "He'll no longer be living on the street or in abandoned storage sheds. He'll be able to have a normal life, and be able to have a home, provide for himself, and purchase clothing, food, and health care."

"He's still in shock. This came out of nowhere. He's a really mellow guy in his 60s, very sweet and more articulate than I thought for a man in his position."
