A 50 year old Dallas man, Douglas Cook, was charged with beating his mother to death and then living with the decomposing corpse. Douglas Cook had a history of abusing his elderly mother and had been arrested in the past. What evil lurks in the hearts of some people? Despite efforts of his deceased mother to not have her son go to jail for past abuses against her, Cook was hell bent on getting there.
A 50-year-old Dallas man with a history of abusing his elderly mother lived with her decomposing corpse for about a week after allegedly beating her to death, MyFoxDallas reported Monday.
According to the report, police discovered the fatally beaten body of Nora Lee Cook, 84, in her bedroom Saturday after neighbors reported a foul odor coming from Cook’s home. The neighbors had told 911 operators that they had not seen Cook in several days, authorities said.
