    Thumbs down One of the reasons why people make me sick!

    46 Pound Woman Starved to Death

    AUGUSTA, Ga. -- At a house overrun with roaches, choked with cobwebs and smeared with garbage police found a 46 pound woman starved to death.


    Officials arrested the victim's sister and brother-in-law Sunday. A grand jury charged them with manslaughter.


    Police said Christine Baxter, 30, died of complications from malnutrition. She was blind, deaf and unable to feed herself.

    Her sister, Jeanne Peterson and Peterson's husband Buel, were supposed to be her caregivers.


    Paramedics found Baxter in the front yard of the house after a 911 call, but were unable to revive her. Investigators said one of the Peterson's made the emergency call.


    Police became suspicious when the family wouldn't let investigators in the house.


    When they finally got inside they found disgusting conditions.


    Feces from pigs, dogs and cats roaming freely throughout the house covered everything. There were so many cockroaches it appeared the walls were moving.


    Trash and rotting food was piled on the floor.


    "Once we entered the residence, we saw what tragic, horrible conditions that the subject had spent the remainder of her life," said Sgt. Richard Roundtree of the Richmond County Sheriff's Office. "This is one of the worst scenes, of living arrangements, that we have run across."


    Health Department officials condemned the house. Code enforcement officials say the house is extremely hazardous, and will be torn down.

    I am a firm believer in the thought that some people are alive simply because it's illegal to kill them.

    The entire town is pretty pissed off about this whole thing. The courts won't treat them lightly.

    It is!

    It is more common than many people realize. Been to a dozen like that....

    I think OXCOP had it right.....some people are alive only because it is illegal to kill them.

    We just had an elderly woman die in her son and daughter in law's care like....2 yrs ago or so. The house was described similar to this one.



    How can people live in houses like that? In our case, the daughter in law and son were living with the mom.....in those conditions.

    I don't think I'd stand 5 minutes in a place like that, let alone live there!

    What this article isn't saying is one of the animals found was a 200 pound, very well fed pig.

    Normally I would suggest putting them back in the house and razing it with one of these:


    But that would be far too good for them.




    The state should take a lesson out of Israel's playbook. That playing being the "Rachel Corrie Bulldozer" play.

    About 6 months after Katrina neighbors got curious about an old guy who had lived in the neighborhood but who hadn't been seen since the hurricane. They went to his house, broke in and found the guy's skeleton on the bed in one of the bedrooms. It's easy to get forgotten.

    Yeah but this woman wasn't forgotten. At least not when there's a well fed pig in the house. Cruel and inhumane punishment for no valid reason. Probably resentment toward her condition. Who knows...I hope they rot in hell.

    Leave them inside the house as they demolish it. That way they can spend their last few moments on Earth like she did.

    Terrible story, very sad. People never cease to amaze me what they do to each other.

    Yes it does. Get a can of gas, and a padlock for the door.
