Unfortunately, not all cases can be won or are eligible for compensation. Sometimes a lack of help can drive people to do horrible things for the people they are supposed to care for. Such seems to be the case as reported in this incident by Deseret News in Utah.
A woman in Salt Lake City has been arrested and charged after police found her home and family in awful conditions. The woman was supposed to be taking care of her husband, who has dementia, and her daughter, who has cerebral palsy.
Police found the husband wandering outside the house and were told that he wanted to file a complaint against his wife. The police noticed the man was extremely thin and had awful hygiene. No call was made by his wife about his disappearance.

Among his complaints, he said that there was human waste on the walls and that his wife was controlling his finances and behavior. When police came over to investigate, the woman refused the officers entry into the home. However, they noticed feces on the woman’s feet, many flies, and a strong odor.
From this evidence, they were able to obtain a warrant. Multiple dead animals and rotten food were found. The daughter lashed out at officers and appeared to be blind. According to neighbors, they had never seen the daughter outside.
The home was condemned and the husband and daughter were taken in by Adult Protective Services.
