    PA - Kathleen McEwan, 70, found murdered, Roxborough, 10 June 2012

    Chex Party Mix, a lotion bottle, a piece of diaper, a candy wrapper, and ten inches of rope. All items had been shoved down the throat of Kathleen McEwan aged 70.

    Arrested was her roomie Geraldine Cherry aged 50 who admitted to a social worker she was a bad person.

    Poor lady was found dead face up and they just figured she died of natural causes. That is until the undertaker went to close McEwan's mouth and a rope popped out. He called the ME who did not believe him until he had sent a photo to them.

    Special needs residents had been moved into the apartment complex recently. Poor Ms. Mcewan was placed there by RHD who perhaps paired her up with Cherry.

    This article ran in our paper today. It encompasses how agencies were putting people into apaprtments who should be in psychiatric hospitals, people dropping the ball, the sad life that was Geraldine Cherry's and a sister from a huge amount of siblings who explains since she was a child they had to put a lock on Geraldine's door. The sister also shared a room with her in Ancora Psychiatric hospital, and many foster homes.

    Sad as well that Ms. McEwan does have people that care about her including a son, daughter and a grandson she adores. She'd herself suffered from schizophrenia, but held a job as a waitress in South Philly for many years.

    Very sad story all around. They do this too often here in IL, put mentally ill patients or people with no place to go in with elderly folks who are unable to defend themselves. So sad.






    All kinds of hugs!
