Homeless man found deceased

TRAVERSE CITY — A homeless man was found dead at a shelter at Three Mile and Garfield roads.

Ryan Hannon, Goodwill's street outreach coordinator, said the man was found unresponsive this morning at the Church of Christ. The church is part Safe Harbor -- a coalition of faith organizations that shelter homeless people on a rotating basis during the colder months. 

"We don’t know why he passed away," Hannon said. "The lifespans of people living on the streets is generally shorter than the rest of us."
