Deputies, Movers Refuse To Evict 103-Year-Old Georgia Woman

Vita Lee has lived in her Northwest Atlanta home for 53 years. But after a second mortgage was taken out on her home, she faced foreclosure and police planned to evict her yesterday.
But as Atlanta's WSB-TV reports, once Fulton County sheriff's deputies and the movers looked at the 103-year-old Lee, they declined to move forward with the eviction.
"I saw the sheriffs, who came to put them out, take off and leave. I gave all glory to God," community activist Michael Langford said.
Channel 2's Ryan Young asked Lee is she was worried about being kicked out of the home. "No, I knew that they know what they were doing. God don't let them do wrong," Lee said.
"Please don't come in and disturb me no more. When I'm gone you all can come back and do whatever they want to," Lee said.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the second mortgage is held by Deutsche Bank. Here's WSB's full video report:
