Missouri Woman Found Fused to Recliner in Home

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A suburban Kansas City woman was left sitting in a vinyl recliner for so long that her skin had fused to the chair and she had to be pried out to be taken to a hospital after suffering an apparent stroke, authorities said.

Carol F. Brown's adult son told a state official he had left his 74-year-old mother in the chair for five days without helping her get up to use the bathroom or bathe because he was honoring her wishes to die in her Independence home, according to court documents that described the woman as a "rotting corpse that was still breathing." Brown later died.

"It is an incredible story to me," Independence police spokesman Tom Gentry said Wednesday.

Police were contacted after Brown was taken to a hospital Oct. 27 and found to have a maggot infestation inside an open wound around her ankle, according to the court documents that said Brown's home was "filthy with a heavy smell of bodily fluids and feces."

Brown's son, James Owens, told an official with the Missouri Division of Senior and Disability Services that his mother had been in the chair since Oct. 23 and that he was honoring her wishes to be left to die, the documents said.

Owens, who the documents said had started the application process to gain state aid to be his mother's caretaker, said he did give the woman tomato and chicken noodle soup.

No working telephone listing for a James Owens could be found Wednesday and a number listed under Brown's name rang unanswered.

Police who searched Brown's home took prescription drug bottles and pills, a section of the recliner and a soiled towel, court records show.

Jackson County prosecutor's office spokesman Mike Mansur said no decision will be made about possible charges until the medical examiner rules on Brown's cause of death.

"I've heard it could take some time," Mansur said. "I don't yet know how quickly it will come."

I don't know how a person can treat anyone like that, especially their own mom.
Maggots in her ankle? Geez..

I agree...even if it is your mother's wish to die in her own home, at least take care of her properly until she passes away...sheesh. There's no excuse for leaving her in a chair for five days without helping her up to go to the bathroom, or neglecting to treat a wound to prevent it from getting fuckin' maggots in it! This guy should be ashamed...and he should be sentenced harshly.

Her son is an idiot. Just because she wishes to die at home, gives him no right to not see to her basic needs. Stupid bastard.

Well he just lost that nomination for son of the year.

Even though I have differences with my own mother, I would still take care of her no matter what. I think this man should be shot for letting her sit there with no help.

So fucked up. I could never leave my mother or father sitting in a chair for that long. Poor woman.

May she rest in peace

I live 10 minutes from where this happened.

Happened about 3 years ago in Raytown (15 minutes away) too, but the lady had no family to aid her and her caretaker had been killed in an accident (she didn't know that).

Pretty crazy.
