Elder Abuse — Society’s Hushed Secret

Jerry Davich: Elder abuse — society’s hushed secret

The frail 65-year-old woman cowered in a corner of a bedroom. Her lips quivered. Her eyes welled with tears.

When Portage police arrived at her home last Sunday night, she was noticeably frightened and intimidated by the other person in the bedroom.

It wasn’t a thief.

It wasn’t a rapist.

It wasn’t even a stranger.
It was her 38-year-old daughter...
When we first reported our concerns to the authorities, Mr. & Mrs. Thelsey L. Fuller were still alive.

The abusers have thus far gotten away with their crimes, how sad.
