Good digging. A question remains whether this story is completely fabricated or if there's some kernel of truth that inspired it.

I have not been to Harris, either, but the laundry detail is striking. A major service of the homeless day center where I volunteer is to provide a mailing address for those who don't have a traditional legal residence. Another is providing laundry machines.

When you have few clothes, a laundromat may be your most frequent stable "address."

In my experience: If, in a story like this, major details, like the year in which it allegedly happened, keep changing -- that's a big red flag as to whether or not any of the story is at all true.
