Bye, Bye Squatters: Soldier is Finally Able to Reclaim Home from Squatters

Two squatters who have been living in a Florida soldier’s home have finally moved out.

The move was driven by community outrage that Julio Ortiz and his girlfriend could take over Spc. Michael Sharkey’s home with no consequences.

Ortiz alleged that he had a verbal agreementwith a friend to live in the home rent-free while fixing it up.

The sheriff’s office says this is a civil matter and won’t intervene.
