Authorities are investigating the death of a 104-year-old woman they say had been neglected by her son. Demetra Leventis was found at her Spartanburg home lying in her own feces and had fist-sized bed sores filled with maggots. Leventis was hospitalized for an infection, and later died. Her 63-year-old son, George Leventis, was arrested and charged with neglect.
This type of neglect is common in nursing homes but no one ever gets arrested for neglect. Sad.
