Minnesota Nursing Home Defends Rapist, Calls 89-Year-Old Victim “A Flirt”

Minnesota Nursing Home Defends Rapist, Calls 89-Year-Old Victim "A Flirt"

An 89-year-old woman is suing a Minnesota nursing home for punitive damages because she was forced to spend 72 hours in a mental health unit after she reported that she was raped by 30-year-old Andrew Scott Merzwski. According to court documents, the woman was a resident at Edgewood Vista senior living facility near Duluth the night that Merzwski entered her room as she was preparing for bed and began taking off his clothes when she invited him to stay and watch a movie. Though she refused his advances, Merzwski later admitted to having sex with her after the victim’s daughter called the police. Merzwski was eventually sentenced to 53 months in prison and ordered to register as a sex offender for a period of 10 years.

But the remaining issue is Edgewood Vista’s egregious mishandling of the crime, which included not only failing to report the crime to police immediately, but mistreating the victim. After the elderly victim reported the rape, Edgewood Vista responded by sending her to a psychiatric ward at St. Luke’s Hospital for nearly three days, where, according to the nurse who eventually examined her, she was locked in a cold room with nothing but a blanket. When nurse examiner Theresa Flesvig finally was able to do a physical examination, she found the “biggest tear” as a result of rape that she had ever seen in her career. Keep reading »

"There's nothing wrong with being a slut."

From the mouths of old people. Seniors say the darndest things. Seriously. There are so many needlepoint worthy quotes from this video of old people talking about gay sex. It has singlehandedly soothed my fears about aging. From here on out, I’m going to surround myself with senior citizens who remind me that “there’s nothing wrong with being a slut.” And the next time someone asks me how I identify, I will answer “OLD.” [Buzzfeed]

70-Year-Old Grandma Laughs About Robbing Bank

I think I might have found someone who tops the mom of two who robbed a bank and then went to pick up her kids a school. Meet, Sandra Bathke, the 70-year-old woman in Minnesota who robbed a bank in December by holding a hammer in her coat and pretending it was a gun. Check out the interview with her above. “I never touched the money, I never smelled the money,” she said. “[The teller] put in my bag and I said, ‘Thank you’ to her before I turned around and walked out the door. There were times when I went, ‘What am I doing?’ Didn’t dawn on me to stop.” Then Bathke laughs. Keep reading »

Nice Old Lady Lives With Husband’s Corpse, Twin Sister’s Corpse

First day back at work after the long weekend and looking for something to pick you up? Try this heartwarming tale of Jean Stevens, 91, who had her dead husband and twin sister dug up days after they were buried and then lived with their bodies. This simultaneously fascinating and stomach-churning story comes to you straight out of Wyalusing, Pennsylvania, where these sorts of things happen, apparently. She stuck the embalmed corpse of her husband of 60 years, James, on the sofa in the garage (he died 10 years ago), and she put her sister, June, dressed in her “best housecoat,” in a spare room (June died last October). Jean regularly went in and put makeup on June and sprayed perfume on her. “This way, I could touch her and look at her and talk to her,” Jean explained. Eventually, though, she got busted; no one knows who tipped off the police. “She’s no weirdo,” one neighbor explained. She simply didn’t like the idea of death, Jean said. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

The Geriatric Pink Panther Is The Purrrfect Retirement Activity

Ever wonder what’s really going on inside the senior center? Here I was assuming that old folks were sitting around playing bridge and painting water colors, but never did I imagine a geriatric performance of “The Pink Panther.” This spirited group of old folks sing and play the “The Pink Panther” theme song while one furry hams it up, acting and dancing the part of the PP. When I saw this it was like watching my future flash before my eyes. Don’t laugh—but this is exactly the kind of thing I hope to be doing when I retire. I could kill that Panther part. Kill it. Am I almost 65? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
