Police: Woman dumped mom beside road

Posted on Wed, Nov. 28, 2007


(AP) -- A woman was arrested after she told police she dumped the 
body of her 83-year-old mother into two garbage bags and left them 
beside the road, Marion County authorities said.

Debra Loreth, 53, of Belleview, told deputies she didn't report the 
death of her mother, Jeanne Vasa, because she wanted to cash the 
woman's retirement checks, according to the sheriff's office.

Loreth was charged with failure to report a death and was being held 
at the Marion County Jail on $500 bond, jail officials said. It was 
not known if she had legal representation.

Detectives have filed paperwork with the state attorney's office 
seeking a charge of improper disposal of a body and one count of 
uttering a false instrument, for allegedly cashing her mother's 
retirement check.

Loreth originally told police her mother died on Sept. 4 and she 
didn't report it because she was being evicted, the Ocala Star-Banner 
reported. She asked a friend to call a cremation business and then 
moved out of the home, leaving her mother's body behind.

Loreth later told police she put her mother in two black garbage bags 
and placed them in a U-Haul truck. She left the bags in Lake County 
and didn't report the death ''because she wanted to keep cashing a 
monthly retirement check that the decedent was getting,'' authorities said.

A couple noticed the suspicious bags on the side of the road and 
called police. Some of the woman's extremities were missing.

An autopsy listed the cause of death as undetermined.
