Anonymous Donor Paying Off Oso Mudslide Victim's $360,000 Mortgage

An anonymous donor is paying off the $360,000 mortgage for a man who lost his wife and house in a deadly mudslide. The massive mudslide destroyed Tim Ward's farmhouse near Oso, Washington, where he and his wife, Brandy, raised turkeys and chickens. They were both home on March 22, 2014, when the wall of earth and debris came cascading down the hill where Brandy was killed instantly by the impact.
