Yesterday morning I checked the news and found an article by Fred Contrada at the Republican about a homeless man found dead in Northampton. His name was John Paul Kozlowski and apparently he'd been sleeping out in the Meadows,.
I asked my sister, a former staffer at the Warming Place, if she knew him.
"I thought he'd gone to Alaska!" she exclaimed.
I hope to find out more about Mr. Kozlowski in the coming days. If anyone knows more, please respond.
Meanwhile I continue to wonder where the area's homeless people will be spending their days this winter.
