US woman, 92, kills son to avoid being sent into care home

Quote:
A 92-year-old US woman shot and killed her son, 72, in order to avoid being sent into a care home, police say.

Anna Mae Blessing, who is charged with murder, contemplated her son's intentions to put her into care for days, according to court documents.

"You took my life, so I'm taking yours," she reportedly said as she was escorted out of the Arizona home she shared with her son and his girlfriend.

Mrs Blessing told police she had intended to kill herself, too.

Glad I saw this before I visit this weekend.



Can't believe I have not seen this movie. Must live in a cave.

Like it or not, she's not going to ever head to an actual "big house". I'm guessing part of the reasons the son listed for his reason to move her into a home was her mental status. It's the easiest way to get someone accepted into nursing homes against their will. Her defense will use that to their advantage, delay the trial as long as possible while she's being evaluated at a friendly facility. They'll never put her into general population based on her age, health and now being a celebrity

Agree. It's just one of those things we have to call a tragedy. As my parents say, 'it's not fun getting old'.
