Woman Arrested After Living With Mother's Corpse For 3 Years

 

3 Years After She Died A Texas woman has been arrested after police found her and her child living in a home with her mother's decomposed body -- at least three years after the mother died.

Seguin resident Delissa Navonne Crayton, 47, was arrested Wednesday on child injury charges, officials say, but more will likely follow as the investigation proceeds. Her arrest came two days after investigators, who were following up on a child neglect tip, found the body of Jacqueline Crayton in a bedroom.

They believe she suffered "a non-life threatening fall" in the bedroom in 2016, but because Delissa failed to help her, she eventually died. She was 71 at her time of death. Delissa Crayton's, whose daughter has been placed in the custody of Child Protective Services, is being held on a $200,000 bond.

What might have tipped off neighbors that a body was in that house? Since this woman clearly has mental issues, should police be getting her help instead of letting her sit in jail?
