On Sunday, September 23, 2012 we were privileged to have Diane Wilson, daughter of Dorothy Wilson as a guest on TS Radio.  The discussion centered around the kidnapping, imprisonment and isolation of Dorothy Wilson. While isolated and moved from one home to another,  her home was mortgaged, her personal possessions sold or given away.
At one point, Bristal Assisted Living facility charged Dorothy’s estate $53,000 for one month’s stay.
Her home was used to receive a reverse mortgage for $275,000.  This, along with $2300 a month in income all disappeared with no acounting by the guardian.  Two years after Dorothys’ initial kidnapping, the guardian had burned through $350,000 of the estate.
On October 23, 2011 after two years of abuse, neglect and isolation, Dorothy Wilson died of loneliness and despair.  This woman who had lived a good life and had planned her retirement, had an ample income and valuable assets, was left penniless by the guardian.  At this point the guardian petitioned the court to allow her to resign as Dorothy’s guardian. Dorothy died just one week before she might have been reunited with her daughter, Diane.
This could happen to you!
