Deadly Caregivers: 3 employees at Cappella Assisted Living and Memory charged with criminally negligent homicide for the death of 86-year-old Hazel Place, who was left in the sweltering heat for at least 6 hours without being checked on at all



Hazel Marie Place

First off, I want to express my condolences to Hazel’s family and friends. I am so sorry you are going through this. For those of you who do know me, you know that I DESPISE crimes against the elderly and disabled. Not because I am disabled, but my grandmother raised my sister and I and she was the most important person in my life. I look at these crimes as if it was her being hurt. It always hurts me to see these things happen. Hazel was just going about her regular daily routine. Everyone at the center knew she was a fall risk and had to be checked every hour. NO ONE checked on her for over 6 hours. No excuses for this. Those “caregivers” need to take responsibility for their actions. Apologies won’t cut it.

Update: Dylan Redwine murder *Father, Mark Redwine has been convicted; Sentenced to 48 years in prison*


Dylan Redwine

Judge Jeffrey Wilson said (at sentencing): In response, Wilson admonished Mark Redwine for his lack of remorse.

“After all this time and listening to what was heard in this courtroom, you still take absolutely no responsibility for what you did to Dylan,” Wilson said. “I have trouble remembering a convicted criminal defendant that has shown such an utter lack of remorse for his criminal behavior.”
