SP_345156_LYTT_MOTEL_1 (November 22, 2011, St. Petersburg, FL) Laurie Hathaway, 29, right, was three days behind on her payment for room 88 at the Mosley Motel and asked to leave. Just when she thought it couldn't get any worse, an exasperated Hathaway covered her face with her hands and sighs. Her mom, Karen Dall, left, had just returned home from the hospital after being Baker Acted when she learned that they no longer had a place to live. Dall started packing her own bags, saying "she'd just find a shelter or a friend or sleep on the streets" because Hathaway had called her aunt for help and a free place to crash with her son for the weekend, and her mom knew she wasn't welcome there.
