US: Madison County To Evict Man Living On His Own Land From His Trailer


Madison County officials are planning to evict Dick Thompson from his recreational trailer that sits on 38 acres.

MAD-IS-ON COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) – 72-year-old Dick Thompson isn’t sure if he wants to fight or give up.

“I want to get the hell out of here right now — too much hate,” Thompson says one minute.

“I think it’s a bunch of bull,” he says another, vowing to stay.

Thompson faces eviction from his 38 acres in Madison County. The county lawyer tells 24-Hour News 8 it’s because Thompson is breaking too many rules, laws and ordinances; Thompson has no water, no sewer and no electricity in his recreational trailer that he calls home.

“I’m a country boy,” explains Thompson. “I just want to be left alone.”

Thompson is mighty fine, thank you very much — along with his dog, Ace, his horse, Fritz, his bird, Sunshine, and many more.

The eviction papers state go-time is “Nov. 30 at noon,”’ though no one came — not yet.
