Crime, Abuse and the Elderly

5 Comments

Everything I read in here is helpful IF YOU HAVE THE $~but for those of us who don't, what then? There is no place for the older population, if you can't pay for it.

I have been the ONLY caregiver for my soon to be X husband for the past 17 years.
Another woman came into his life & instructed him to change all the locks on all the doors & he did so, locking me out. She proceeded to get him a attorney, telling him I was a prostitute & selling drugs, & that he needed to divorce me. We are now in the process of the divorce. Yep, I am a 71 yr.old hooker selling drugs?????????
Sept. of 2015 is when this all went down. I attempted to go into our home & all the locks had been changed. I knocked on the window & he came to the door & when I attempted to walk into my home, he pushed me down resulting in my suffering a heart attack, a severe spinal injury requiring surgery, a 3 month hospital stay which has left me in $300,000. debt. I have never till this point been in debt in my entire life. Police were very supportive & told me not to let him use the "mental illness" to get away with it . Police were not able to arrest him because he had an attorney all set up already via this woman who entered our lives & turned mine upside down.

I am not able to do much anymore. Till this incident of his pushing me down, I was running daily.
I am not congenitally impaired. He suffers from a brain tumor, biopolar disease, & solvent dementia.

I have gone through the entire system here where I live & come up with nothing.

I will be living on the street soon.

ADVICE?

I IGNORED HIM AFTER HIS FIRST POST BECAUSE OF THE ENGLISH AND ALSO HIS COMMENT " he ONLY USES ONE GIRL AT A TIME" USES MADE ME LAUGH IT IS SOO SAD

You are absolutely right! That 's one of the "red flags!" I also found out that it was not any of our soldiers doing this, it's coming out of Nigeria!!!! I found out about this Troy Turner and he's been discharged over 4 years ago and is still trying to clear his name!!!

read his broken english and you would know he is NOT a US soldier, he murders the english language

LONGLIFE I've been writing several comments in this article but here's a very important one that should be reported to the head of the US Army at the pentagon. There'a group of military men some stationed in Kabul, Afganistan sending letters to helpless females usually lonely, old ladies. I happen to be one of those ladies. He's very good at his scam.............he's told me that his wife and young son died and he wanted to kill himself but finally by reading the bible it helped him and now he's looking for an older woman to hopefuully marry. He asked me for pictures of myself and told me I was so beautiful and I began falling in love with this guy. We wrote back and forth and it was getting serious. He said he had ony less than 2 months before retiring, etc., etc. By now I just knew this wasn't right so I decided to investigate him and found his name in some of the army files. All of this was leading up to asking for money! His NAME IS
Master Sergeant Troy Turner, and he was mentioned in several scams!

Please everyone out there report him to the Pentagon and have this stopped! We are asked to honor and respect our soldiers and this is what they are doing to us!!!!
