    The son of the man whose body was found more than
    two months ago along a stream in southwestern
    Wayne County said his father was much more than a
    homeless man living in a mission in downtown
    Muncie.

    "He was happy-go-lucky. He was educated. He was
    personable," said James N. "Jimmy" Cassudakis,
    21, who lives near Muncie. "The idea that he was
    just this homeless guy living in Muncie is not
    right.

    "That was my dad at the lowest point in his
    life," he said Thursday.
    He was from Dayton, OH, and had worked as a counselor in a mental health agency. There were problems with depression and alcohol but the son says he had found help from faith. The son was to pick his father up from the Muncie Mission in early March but the mission worker called him and said his father had left.

    Not sure about the status of the homicide investigation.
