    Aww, poor thing. Some family friend. Hope they release information on the suspect soon, so we can look for priors.

    What? Who does that? Poor Flora.

    Her grandaughter left Gram just to go next door. She left her with a family friend. She returns to find her poor Gram dead in the shower while the friend is just sitting there?


    90 years on this da*n earth and this poor woman gets murdered like this? Sometimes I'm embarassed to be human seriously. What harm could this lady have caused anyone? Blunt force trauma in your own house/apartment.

    I know.This really gets me mad! What kind of monster can do this and feel nothing? I don't get it.

    My Mom is 90 years old. I'll be visiting her tomorrow.
    I'm giving her an extra, extra long hug.

    This article gives many more details. The "family friend" was a homeless man (with a long criminal history) these women let to stay in their home.

    Dean Wood aged 56.

    Four generations of women lived in the apartment. The victim, her DD, her grandaughter and her great grand.

    The victim's DD worked at The Salvation Army and befriended Wood there. He was permited to live at the apaprtment and helped with laundry and such. He recently was kicked out of the apartment because he was drinking and slapped the grandaughter.

    Oh for God's sake.

    What a precious woman -- did you see her picture. Reminded me of my nan.

    And some family friend -- he obviously did it (or it could be a she). After all, the daughter was only gone a short while.

    Ryan said the family friend was in the living room when she came home.

    Who kills a 92 year old woman!!!!

    MOO

    Here's a picture of the perverted sadist murderer.

    The other 3 are lucky to be alive.

    So sad. This reminds me of a case I saw on The First 48 a few months back (which, occurred in Houston as well).

    My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
