Texas woman lived with mother’s skeletal remains for 3 years
A Texas woman who worked as a police dispatcher lived in a home with her mother’s remains left on the floor for the past three years, authorities said.
Jacqueline Crayton, 71, died in a fall inside the home in Seguin that she shared with her daughter and granddaughter, a disabled 15-year-old girl, according to news reports.
“They were in a bedroom on the floor in plain view,” Seguin Police Chief Terry Nichols told reporters Thursday, referring to the remains.
According to Fox 7 Austin, police said Jacqueline Crayton could have survived if her daughter had attended to her injuries.
The daughter, Delissa Crayton, 47, was arrested on a felony charge of injury to a child, police said.
The chief told reporters that Delissa Crayton worked as a dispatcher for the Seguin Police Department until she quit in 2014.
Nichols said the dead woman was well-known and respected in Seguin.
Family members have taken in the 15-year-old, he said.
