Oakland Homicide

We received a call from a family in Oakland.   They explained to us that their grandfather was murdered in his home over the weekend.

She lost her husband in Afghanistan fives years prior and has been suffering emotionally since then. She never could accept the fact that he was gone and she took her emotions out on her home. She was an extreme hoarder that started with clothing and apparel, then things got out of hand. Fueling her habit was a large settlement from life insurance, on which she has been spending it on everything under the sun.
