BiographyEdit

On December 14th, 2016, Fort Bragg police officers were called to Duncan Place apartment complex to conduct a welfare check after neighbors complained about a foul smell. Officers found the body of 66 year old Arlene Potts, who had been dead at least a month.

Her caretaker, 56 year old Lori Diane Fiorentino, has been charged and ordered to go on trial for elder abuse.

MummificationEdit

Officers conducting the welfare check found Potts' body on the couch in her living room, obscured by several shopping carts, wearing layers of feces covered diapers. Her body was severely emaciated due to prolonged neglect by her caretaker.

StudiesEdit

The body was transported to the Mendocino County Medical Examiner in Fort Bragg, CA, for examination

PathologyEdit

An autopsy found ulcerated lesions and emaciation, and severe muscle atrophy on Potts’ body, but was unable to determine a cause of death.
