Brandywine resident searching for home
BATON ROUGE- After the city gave residents of the embattled Brandywine apartment complex another month to find a place to live, at least one man is left without any options.
Francis La Fleur owns his unit at the complex, but because of poor management, the complex's utilities will be shut off at the end of the month, leaving him homeless.
"Now I have nothing, I have a big goose egg, nothing to show for it," said La Fleur, who paid $35,000 for his unit and lives on a fixed income.
Even with the deadline for Brandywine fast approaching La Fleur has his mind on his wife, who's due home soon from several surgeries.
"I worked hard to get this unit here, it was supposed to be my retirement home and now I can't," said La Fleur, "All I want right now is a place to live in, just something established that she can live in and I can live in and we can call it home."
