The Philadelphia Daily News had a news report of a amn who was allowed to take a resident out of a nursing home and rape her. Yeadon police have charged a Northeast Philadelphia man with raping a dying 70-year-old nursing-home patient with Alzheimer’s disease and a brain tumor. Doctors say she may have had less than six months to live.
Timothy Patrick White, 46, waived his preliminary hearing yesterday and was held for trial on 15 counts of rape and related charges. White took the victim from the Manor Care Nursing Home to a Southwest Philadelphia bar for rum-and-cokes, then to Cobbs Creek Park, where they drank beer until 5:30 a.m. on July 22. When he drove the woman back to the nursing home, staffers noticed that White was "not wearing a shirt and his pants were unbuttoned," according to the affidavit for his arrest. They also found bruises on the victim’s mouth, neck and arms, and discovered that she was not wearing any underwear. White told workers he was "a friend of hers," then drove away, police said. It was unclear how White was able to leave the home with the woman.
How did he have access to the resident? How did the nursing home not notice that she was missing for all those hours? This is disgraceful on the part of the nursing home.
A DNA sample taken from White matched semen recovered from the victim’s anal cavity, according to police.
