Last Christmas Stephen Cross lived under a bridge in downtown Minneapolis."I found a little spot that just my body frame could fit in," said Cross, adding that he cleaned it with Tide and bleach before he laid down. "I wanted to look like a human being and feel decent when I come out from under that bridge," said Cross.
