FL woman leaves mom's body on floor for 18 months

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

FORT MYERS, FL (WFLX) - A Fort Myers woman says she didn't call emergency responders when her mother lay dying in her home because the two thought they would lose the house if officials discovered its filthy condition.

Authorities believe they recently found the remains of Gladys Andrews in the home she shared with her 61-year-old daughter, Gail Andrews. They discovered the remains, which were hidden by garbage and furniture, after days of searching.

According to The News-Press, Gladys Andrews had fallen about 14 months ago, and Gail Andrews couldn't lift her.

The newspaper reports after Gladys Andrews eventually died, Gail Andrews left the body on the floor.

Gail Andrews isn't facing criminal charges, but her house is now condemned and might be demolished.
