They may have $138K but nothing can make the daughter sell the house to him.

And even if she does sell it to him, that means the C-word gets the money she's after.

For 1/5 of that money, they could hire somebody to disappear her.

Would not work.  Eviction order is in process and wouldn't be canceled by her death.   His only hope is that daughter doesn't find a higher bidder, or leave money on the table just to spite him.  Seems to be a lot of vitriol surrounding the autistic brother.  Daughter has stated that Dad could stay put if he would just drop some lawsuit involving the brother.

How much does it cost to have the daughter shot into the sun?

I just read the article but if what it says is true the money should go to hire a lawyer. If she used the power of attorney to deed the home into her name such a transfer is almost certainly illegal. A POA does not let the party do whatever the hell they want. There remains a fiduciary duty. So she is going to have to explain to the court how the transfer of the house from his name into hers was in his best interest. Good luck with that. Especially after this publicity.

It would be cheaper.
J/K, but it's tempting.
There should be no statute of limitations in a case like this, if the daughter committed fraud, bring her up on charges.

Evicted: Earlier this year Mr Potter's daughter, Janice Cottrill, sent him an eviction notice after she illegally signed over this home he built 53-years old to her name, according to his granddaughter

Maybe I'm not understanding this correctly, but how do you get to evict someone when you commit a crime to obtain ownership of the property?  Shouldn't she be sitting in a jail cell awaiting trial instead of trying to kick her dad out?

According to TFA, he sued and won, but then in appeals the statue of limitations lapsed, so he technically lost or something

I dont have any nice words to say about her.

A 91 year-old shouldn't have to deal with this stuff.
If any of this story is real, that fat coont deserves an eviction from existence for turning on her parent in such a way.

I don't know about that, because the same article says that his first case against his daughter was overturned in appeals court because the statue of limitations had run out on how long he had to take action.

I volunteered in a nursing home for a few years after highschool and I was constantly shocked at the number of families that tore themselves apart over disagreements (usually over money) between family members. I remember one pair of sisters who lived in the city but would only come and visit their ailing father if they knew for certain the other sister wasn't there. Apparently the falling out was over some piece of artwork their deceased mother had painted and they had barely spoken for a decade.

It was just such a shame that these elderly people have to spend their last remaining years as pawns between feuding siblings.

I live about 15 miles from Zaleski. In fact, I jut did a little construction work there about a month ago. I know plenty of people with the same last names as these people, although I don't know if they are related. If I weren't so lazy, I'd try to find out the real deal for everyone here. The only problem is, everyone from my town does their shopping, working, and social life in the town 10 miles to my east, while everyone in the Zaleski area does theirs in the town 15 miles to their west. There is almost no interaction.

I would be tempted to call this a scam, if for no other reason than there is no house in Zaleski worth $100k. I'd be surprised if there were a house worth $75k.

Also, whoever suggested taking a portion of the money to have the daughter disappeared, I know dozens of people who would do it for a few thousand dollars. They wouldn't be the most discreet or dependable employees, though, so caveat emptor.

If my memory serves me correctly, this is that story where everybody assumed that the daughter was a coont after money, but it was really more along the lines of an old man who needs to be forced into a nursing home and something about a dispute over a mentally incapacitated brother.

The obvious case of "best interest" I see here is "have to get the old man into assisted living or a nursing home before he hurts himself".  And, ironically, the fact the he gave her a POA is potentially evidence he can't handle his own affairs.

No idea what's going on here; I'm very hesitant to judge a legal case based on media reports.  Reporters can screw up something as simple as an arraignment, after all.

That's basically the conclusion people came to in the last thread - Yeah, it's totally possible the daughter is a biatch, but it's also quite possible that the dad *needs* to be in a home, or that the reason the daughter is taking care of the autistic brother is because the dad is incapable or abused him in some way. 95% of the stories have been based on what the granddaughter has said and the only quote from the daughter's husband is that they wouldn't evict if the dad would stop trying to get custody of the autistic son.

/the number of stories in the last thread from people who had to force their clearly incapable elderly relatives into facilities so they wouldn't hurt themselves was astonishing... and sad.
