Piles and piles of garbage outside of a home on Courtney Lane in Chattanooga are now part of a narcotics investigation-and a 71 year-old woman deemed a hoarder is at the center of it.

CSI New York
CSI Miami
CSI Cyber

And yet no one in any of those writer's rooms thought of this.

Hoarding... blood?

Mmm, nope. I RTFA, and I still don't think that's spiffy.

Jesus, man. Is like, eviction the first step to getting your mom help for her chemical dependence and mental problems? 'Cause otherwise, man... Her daughter is one hell of a bastard.

Matthews said there were enough patient records to fill an investigator's van from Grimsley--who is also her mother.

You didn't RTFA very thoroughly, because it clearly quotes the daughter as saying she didn't know about most of it. Just the trash and the unpaid bills.

If you have a parent with issues, you deal with it before it turns into a pooping-on-the-floor problem.
I mean, how long did she go without going into her mom's house?  She was the freaking landlord, she could have gone in whether her mom invited her or not (with proper notice, etc).

This is most decidedly NOT spiffy.

You ever try to tell a hoarder mother that she has a problem, especially as she tries to gaslight others in the family into thinking somebody else has that same problem?  I don't think this was just out of the blue.

i had a time where i didn't go to my mom's house for over 10 years, and it was not because of distance. my sisters went every weekend to clean but all our mom wanted was to go out for lunch. cleaning out the filth and hoard after she had to move to one sisters house so we could give her 24/7 care was disgusting. many people do not age out well and need adult supervision.

It's a pretty big assumption, that she never went over there in 20 years.

Daughter said she knew what she was getting into with the hoarding situation but was unaware of all the identity theft.

Hoarding is a very serious mental illness and it's entirely possible the mother refused help repeatedly.  That's not behavior you can force someone to change, there has to be a will to change.

Not advocating anything, just pointing out that TFA is pretty sparse on details of what led up to evicting her.  Maybe she's been trying to help her for 10 years and is just fed up.  Maybe she decided " fark this old bag" on the spot and decided to boot her out.

My mom was a hoarder. My sister would get her out of the house, and I would go in and clean it.  I didn't throw out any treasures but the garbage was taken out and the plumbing and appliances were kept in good working order.   It made mom mad, but at some point you have to treat them like children and do what is best for them regardless of  how they feel about it.

Both Lead and Lede are correct, with Lede being a fairly recent variation.

It's actually a little interesting from an etymological aspect.  Miriam-Webster covers it decently.

It's the reboot of the old sitcom; the new one is called "my mother the CSI van" and she goes around solving crimes with the daughter who is a CSI.

It's unlikely the mother would have let her in.

It sounds like the daughter did the eviction because of the hoarding--her property, she's responsible for the trash, she had to evict.  The eviction then showed the problem was far worse than what it looked like on the surface.

grimlock1972: Eviction was not what was needed here, a transfer to a nursing home or assisted living situation is what was needed.


That would require having her declared legally incompetent.

Lede is an archaic spelling that is no longer needed because newsroom don't use Linotype machines for typesetting anymore:

https://www.merriam-webster.com/words​-​at-play/bury-the-lede-versus-lead

It only came about in the 70s, so it's not like there is this centuries-long tradition of using that spelling.

Just stop correcting people so we can let that annoying alternate spelling die.

I don't have a degree in journalism (or anything else) nor spent time in a newsroom and I've honestly known it's spelled l-e-d-e for about 25 to 30 years.

To give that some context, I'll be turning 40 in a couple of years.

Only thing I can think of that would account for it is that I take a particular enjoyment in acquiring new words, even moreso when I was a kiddo.

Which may be exactly why her family had to call the cops for an eviction. Depending on their resources and what it would have taken to legally override the mom's own wishes to not be declared incompetent, an arrest may be one of the only ways they can get the assistance she needs.

I once called my mother's probation officer and reported an arm's length of crimes and threatened to sue the poor man for negligent death (or some such that I made up out of whole cloth) if he did not take her into custody and she died.

Getting mental health care for an adult child is almost impossible. Getting mental health care for a parent is much harder.

My mother had been clean for maybe five years when she died last February. There is no way those years of chain smoking, drunkenness, Xanax, Oxy, and meth didn't shave decades off her life.

Gramma: If you have a parent with issues, you deal with it before it turns into a pooping-on-the-floor problem.


Yeah, bullshiat.  I've spent 30 years scrubbing my digital footprint from nearly every database I can, and obfuscating those I can't simply have removed using my wife's name in legal contracts that will end up on the web. All to hide from my dad. I lived with that psychotic for my first 15 years, then got to spend the next 4 helping my mother pay off the bankruptcy he rolled on us.  After the courts said he didn't have to help me anymore, he didn't, he completely farking ghosted. 

If his 80's are being rough on him, oh well. To quote what he screamed while he dislocated my jaw at 11 years old, "You made your mess, you deal with it!" I've built a stable, successful, non-abusive, caring family with a kid at the top of her class, all without one willing word or dime of support from him, ever. He's not invited to fark it up in any way.

If your parents were farked before your existence, you bear no responsibility in their bullshiat other than to get away from it.
