Hi. Merl "Merline" Hopper was found dead at 6:54 am Saturday, November 15, 2014. It was determined that she suffocated under her sweaters while she slept on a garbage couch. A picture of Walmart was found in her pocket. On the back it said: "Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of a giant store that sold everything you could dream of, a place you could live and never have to leave. As my mom always said, 'Why use your legs when God made wheelchairs?"
