First Class Dirtbag! Put her in a dog crate where she belongs! A 6 x 9 cell is too big. Cashing his checks??

A new article on suggests that what the daughter has been saying all along.... is true. Lead investigator suggests all evidence is showing the mother was the only person initially involved and that some years later, the daughter was involved. Which supports what the daughter has been saying, that she didn't know he as dead and she accepted what she thought was gifts and ultimately her mother requested that she cash the checks so her new husband wouldn't know Donald was giving her money. Sounds like the daughter was an unaware accomplice to me. Who would think their own mother was a criminal? I feel bad for her and I hope they find enough evidence to nail the mother to the wall for this crime.

Didn't this man have any relatives or friends? Nobody questioned his absence? If he needed assistance living, why didn't he have a nurse scheduled to visit regularly?
There are many unanswered questions.

Why doesn't the US Gov't have a closed loop system (ie. Annual checkin) where welfare F'cks have to "at least" prove they're alive!!!!! We have a famous case here where I live where Dorthea Puente (Sacramento Boarding House Murders) buried 15-20 people around here house in Sacramento, CA and cashed their SS checks for years. WTF?
