From the Point Reyes Light: "The number of people living in their vehicles in Marin nearly doubled in the past two years, reflecting a chronic issue that is complex and expensive to address.
The latest toll of the crisis is 58-year-old Billy Spangler, who was found dead in his vehicle on Saturday with no signs of foul play, the coroner said. Mr. Spangler had five cars that he lived in between Bolinas and Point Reyes Station.
Andrew Loose, the owner of Five Brooks Ranch where Mr. Spangler worked off and on for the past 15 years, said Mr. Spangler was a good soul with a troubled past. He had a strong connection with the horses, but every now and then he would seem like he was in a different world, and Mr. Loose would have him take a break from work. Last Thursday, he brought Mr. Spangler a meal, and he looked pale and his voice was rough. Mr. Loose asked him if he was seeing a doctor, and Mr. Spangler said, “No, I’m a doctor.”
“He was very special in his own way,” Mr. Loose said."
