Jessica says her once successful Uncle Ed had a long-standing career in the aerospace industry but lost everything in just six months. She says he left his home, marriage, children, and job and began street performing and preaching as “Cowboy Tygg.” She says her once responsible uncle has since been arrested seven times, destroyed his credit, gotten multiple tattoos, and moved across the country where he now spends most of his time high and drinking, floating in a motel pool. Ed’s sister, Dawn, and brother-in-law, Bill, say Ed suddenly “snapped” last year, and no one knew what was happening or how they could help him. Ed says he believes he would never have been in the position he is today if it wasn’t for his parents betraying him one year ago. Ed says his parents have been dead in his eyes ever since.
