Here, Mom, we'll take care of you. Just not in our home where we will actually have to lift a finger to assist you. We're going to ship you off to a lovely facility where the haitian women will take care of your every need and we promise to visit at least twice a year.
Did you miss the part of the article that says she suffers from Alzheimers? Caring for an Alzheimers patient can be a 24 hour job. The average home is not equipped, nor does the typical family member/loved one have the patience or training. An assisted living facility is often the safest, most comfortable place for Alzheimer patients.

A thief is a thief. They are scum. It makes no difference to them who they steal from or who they hurt. A thief is worthless scum.

The state of Florida makes it very easy for family to prey on the elderly even if they have a will. The executor of a will can even pick up the will from the lawyer the parent hired to be trustee.

My uncle did that 8 months after my grandmother died. Probably because he didn't like that she left his sister something. Now all he has to do is make the will disappear and 1/2 will go to him thru probate. She deeded over all her property to him when he was alive but made him executor of what was left and he's going to get what he can no matter what her final wishes were in her will.

Why a non-attorney can pick up the dead persons will from an attorney and then not put it with another attorney seems to be legal in Florida because I contacted a lawyer who called the lawyer my grandmother hired and guess what. He said my uncle picked up her file. I called the State of Fla and nobody seems to think this is illegal and the original attorney did not retain a copy of her file.

My uncle can file in probate and say a will never existed.

That is the state of Florida for you.

Where were the OTHER family members before this happened? Stole the SS checks or used them to live on while caring for this woman with Alzheimers, a full time job? It sounds to me like the OTHER family members figured this man would do the job for free with his own money and when they found out the money was being used to care for the woman, they decided it was time to call in the cops and lock the woman away in a detention center. There are always at least two sides to every story!
