We’re told a Tyler construction crew will break ground on the home in the coming weeks, once all permits are finalized.
As we reported…Tyler He pledged his support To Josephine in July, when he learned of her legal war with Bailey Point Investment Group. Billy Point reportedly wanted to buy Wright’s land on Hilton Head, but didn’t want to give it up because it had been in her family for generations…and then BP filed suit to seize her property.
Wright told the news outlet, WSAV-TV, how BP got approval from the city to develop 29 acres of land behind her house… and says she turned down an offer to buy her house. Once Wright refused, she claims BP began harassing her, leading to a lawsuit to seize property she says had belonged to her family since the Civil War era.
One of Josephine A.’s descendants organized GoFundMe To help pay her legal fees… A September page update indicates a tree fell on the house and opened two holes in the roof.
Now, Josephine has a whole new place…thanks to Tyler.
