Thus, two police officers visited the nonagenarian . The latter had been abandoned by her children and lived alone in a large house, without food.

“We went to see how she was doing. , explained Marquis Hines, one of the police officers. She told us that she had two children who forgot her. There was no food in the refrigerator, only expired milk and lemonade. There was only one packet of cereal and the house had not been cleaned recently. She just wanted to know why her children didn't bring her food and check on her. She listed us everything she needed: some sandwiches or something to not be hungry. »
