Did she put it in a box in the piano?
 
2013-03-30 12:20:03 PM
She claims the night of the shooting her mother asked, "How soon do you think life insurance policy will send me a check?"
 . . .
Glassey says her mother is bipolar and has schizophrenic tendencies. She believes her mother is on medication but could not tell me any prescriptions specifically.


If the mother is bipolar and schizophrenic, then she should be used to her asking inappropriate questions.

So a daughter who has had little or no contact with a mother who lost custody of her 13 YEARS ago is sure of her mothers motives. Uh huh. No bad blood at all.

I'm not judging this either way but it is common to ask about insurance payouts when you have to pay for a funeral and have no money to do so. This lady doesn't seem particularly well off.

mentally ill people having children. didn't work out well for my mom either. when are people going to wake the fark up and support a good eugenics program for the good of all. i'm not talking killing people Hitler style, he took good proven american science and raped it. sterilizing the mentally ill will do more good than letting babies be born to those who are no where near capable of raising them well.

You have obviously never seen the kind of person who can arise from the ashes of... less than suitable parents. Some of us see what they are and vow never to become that. The "sins" of the parents shouldn't be passed on to the kids.

Nancy put all of her eggs in that never-ending Jodi Arias basket.  She hasn't veered from it since (and can't now)... I doubt they knew it would go on this long and be so frigging boring.

So the woman has been mentally ill for a long time and has been having mood swings and acting weird and erratic since her son was shot in the head? Well, lock her up and throw away the key then. Clearly no innocent person would veer between sounding normal and crying when they've just had a shocking, horrible thing happen to them.  I really hope the daughter has more to go on than that, otherwise she's a biatch for giving this story to the media. (Also, asking about insurance payouts isn't suspicious in itself -- she's got a funeral to arrange and probably needs the money. Now, if she just upped the insurance to $100K last week, then I'd start giving her the side eye).

I agree whole-heartedly... but a person of extremely modest means typically doesn't have life insurance on a toddler in the first place.

I have to agree on this one.

I have no idea if this is true or not...but watching her first interview on the news was weird. She was sitting on her couch and just seemed to be repeating lines that she had memorized with all the emotion of a wet paper bag.

I have no idea what level of grief and shock she was in, but the interview just seemed weird.

Maybe...I belong to a credit union. All members automatically get a small (2K) life insurance policy for free. Not saying that's the case with this lady.

This is exactly what I thought. Plenty of people have little to no life insurance on their children. It's not smart, but common.

I would guess very few poor people would have insurance of any kind, let alone insurance on their toddler.

Not usually, but it's not vanishingly rare, either -- a lot of times, policies on children are offered to parents who are taking out policies on themselves. In my case, I was getting life insurance a few months after my son was born (household income about $25K per year at that point) and I was offered a $5K policy on him for a few extra dollars a year. Enough for burial costs, basically. If she took out a policy on herself at the same time, or worked for an insurance agency, she could have gotten one without much trouble and might have been encouraged to do so.

In other news today, there are claims that the daughter is being paid by the defense attorney of the shooter to make these allegations.

This is going to be a full blown media circus shortly.

I was going to say this.  I recently signed up for life insurance for myself and was given the option to add a $25,000 policy for my 9 month old daughter for $6 a month.  It seems morbid to even think about, but I went ahead and did it...just in case the unthinkable were to happen.

I don't disagree. My kids each have a $10,000 policy. I bought then when I got mine. But I'm also fairly successful and live a middle class existence.

My limited experience show me that most people who don't have a lot of money don't spend on things like insurance. The guy who ran into my car a couple of months ago was poor and didn't have insurance even though he was required to by law.

Most poor people are more concerned about buying food and keeping the electricity turned on.

You forgot the farking
 
2013-03-30 04:43:06 PM
My mother kept policies on each of her grandkids until the kids turned 25, and then she turned them over to the kids.  Without exception, each kid immediately cashed them out for less than what she paid in.  My kids came along after her death, so I bought theirs myself, and will keep them paid up until I die.  And no, the kids don't even know about the policies.
