The Atlanta Journal-Constitution recently reported that the family of a 94-year-old widow offered a $2,000 reward for information that leads to the conviction of an unknown man who they say sexually assaulted her at Governor’s Glen Memory Care and Assisted Living facility.
The Golden family alleges that the home didn’t handle the case properly. The family said police were not called for five hours, and the delay hurt the gathering of crucial evidence. The day of the incident, Golden told nursing staff she had been inappropriately touched by an unknown man the night before, according to police. She said this around 9:30 a.m., according to Madden.
Governor’s Glen officials deny that Golden was the victim of a sexual assault.
“We believe nothing happened,” said Dennis Stamey, an operating partner with Canopy Lifestyles, which operates Governor’s Glen and five other facilities in Georgia.
