Neglected to Death

A man is now charged with murder, accused of neglecting his 73-year-old mother and causing her death.

He was her sole caretaker. At the time of her death in June, investigators say she weighed just 63 pounds.

The details are disturbing. According to investigators, she had not been bathed in a year, and she had not been moved off the couch for the last eight months of her life. She was severely malnourished and her body was infected. Pictures show the conditions Catherine Mukdsi was living in. Investigators say there was a blanket she used. It appears to have kept the outline of her small body. The day she died, her son, Christopher Mukdsi placed her in a wheelchair and removed her clothing that was covered in feces and urine, and then attempted to clean her up with a garden hose.

Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton: "It's a case of severe neglect turned into horrific abuse that ended in murder.

Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell: "She was living in a death camp."

The cruelty and greed of some people reminds me of a chilling documentary and a statement made by a convicted serial killer:

There are only two types of people on this earth: PREADATORS and their PREY

I am haunted til this day, I can still see the murderer's face summing up the true character of people in a few words.

This is so very awful. To think someone could do that to his own Mother.

I hope he lives long enough to live a LONG life in prison!

Even the prisoners have a code of ethics. They will show this offender what they think of him and who his victim was. Sometimes street justice behind bars is very deserving and justified.
