0Mar 20, '02 by ScarletteThank you everyone for your replies. I'm going to print this out and show my family.
The slurred speech was from being drugged up all the time by him. I've seen it first hand when she would complain of a headache he would push pills on her. She would ask what it was and he'd tell her to nevermind, he knew what was best for her and she should take the pills.
When she almost died 11 years ago it happened at my Grandma's house. He dumped her off to go golfing and a while later she turned blue and almost stopped breathing. My mom called an ambulance and after they took my Aunt, another Aunt and my mom went through her suitcase and found 3 HUGE ziplock baggies full of pills that weren't in bottles. The FBI was notified, they investigated, found that where he worked pills were missing, gave him a slap on the wrist, and he opened his own store. I can't remember exactly what pills were in those bags, this happened the day before my high school graduation.
He wanted the body cremated, but her 3 sons said that they didn't want that, so luckily she is buried.
Believe me, it is hard to be coming here and accusing someone of murder, my hands are shaking as I type this, but I need to know what steps my family needs to take. We're apprehensive of going to police because we don't want them to laugh in our faces. We also don't want hard feelings with my cousins, but we can't live the rest of our lives wondering what exactly happened.

You HAVE to go to the police. Thats the first step to get your answers. So what if they laugh (I doubt they will but if they do - so what?) The man has a history. You just stand firm & push it until they pay attention or go above their heads. All you have to do is give them the info you have put here, including his past "activity", they will do the rest. Even if he didnt intentionally mean to kill her, if he was giving unprescribed drugs to her, he was doing something illegal. Let them investigate. You arent going to get any answers any other way. After her report comes back showing unprescribed meds, report him to his licensing board.
0Mar 20, '02 by P_RNPlease accept my condolences upon your aunts passing.
CAJ is an expert. You have his opinion and need to implement it NOW. Talk w/ you Mom and Grandmom and get it in progress. STAT.
Atarax is Vistaril with a different radical on the end. A lot of people have prescriptions for it for itching, nausea et. al.
This whole thing stinks. Do as CAJ says and call the authorities, not the funeral home or doctor.
0Mar 20, '02 by BrandyBSNThat is a terrible situation. I am so sorry for your loss. Death is hard enough to deal with WITHOUT this type of suspect behavior. My thoughts are with you, and your family. Please keep us posted on what is being done.
Again, so sorry,
