Abused While Alive And After Death

Not Only Physically Abused
A 65-year-old American woman with dementia was locked in a tiny room - with a urine-soaked mattress to sleep on and a dog bowl to drink from for months - so that her three "keepers" could live off her monthly government pension cheques.

A police officer sent to the suspects' home in Anderson, Indianapolis found Anna Turner locked in the 2m by 2.5m storage room, police said in a probable cause affidavit.
One of the suspects, Luigi A. Amalfitano, 45, told the officer that he didn't know Turner and that she wasn't at the home.
But the officer conducted a sweep of the home and found Turner in a room that was "barely fit to contain an animal, let alone a human being".

Amalfitano, his 20-year-old son Louis A. Amalfitano, and his son's girlfriend, 21-year-old Stephanie Lynette Cole were arrested and face preliminary charges of exploitation of an endangered adult.
The Amalfitanos also face preliminary charges of confinement and battery, and Cole faces a preliminary charge of aiding confinement.
The three remained jailed on Friday, May 28 on US$100,000 (S$140,000) cash bonds.

Anderson police Detective Mitch Carroll said Turner suffered severe physical abuse at the house and was gaunt, malnourished and had a black eye and large bruises on her arm and body when she was taken from the home. - AP

Spiritually Abused Too

ALTHOUGH the old granny was surviving on the little allowance subsidised by the Social Welfare Department, she took good care of her grandson.

After all the love and efforts she showered on the boy, the granny did not get back the treatment she deserved.
She died in 2008 but was only laid to rest a year later as the grandson lost all the money for her funeral at the gambling table.

A court in the Special Administrative Region found the odd-job worker, 19, guilty and ordered him to continue with his rehabilitation course at a training centre.
The teenager had been undergoing the course since November 2008 after he was found guilty of selling illegal cigarettes.

According to Ming Bao, the grandson was sent to live with his grandmother in Hong Kong by his parents, who remained in China when he was nine years old.
In August 2008, the grandmother died at the hospital.
Then, a sum of HK$10,750 (S$2,050) was deposited into the grandson's account by the Social Welfare Department for the granny's funeral arrangements.

Two days after the money was given, the grandson took all of them and travelled to Macau.
He only returned five hours later after losing the money at he gambling table.
His grandmother was left at the hospital mortuary for a year and was only laid to rest in August 2009 with the help of police and the Social Welfare Department.
