Abuser dons disquise, update on Robert Stella

Elder Abuse Suspect Dons Disguise to Get Close to Victim

Caught on camera: Estranged wife of elderly La Jolla resident was armed with a pen and legal docs, family said

A La Jolla woman, in disguise and armed with a pen and legal documents, tried to visit the elderly man she’s accused of abusing, family members told NBC 7.

Robert Stella and family members recently filed a restraining order request against Victoria Turner after a surprise visit at the care facility where Stella is undergoing treatment.

Stella, who just turned 91, was rescued from the garbage and filth in his own home last March. Family members claim his estranged wife, Turner, kept the home cluttered and filthy and – at times – tied Stella to his bed.

When Stella was removed from the home malnourished and dehydrated, he was hospitalized in ICU for days.

He is now recovering at a rehab facility where, according to daughter Michelle Redfield, Turner used a disguise and fictitious purpose to get close to him.

NBC7 Investigates obtained a copy of the security video and the restraining order affidavits connected to the April 5 visit.
