These stories are just tough to read.
In the past week, you may have heard about Jane Morgan, 84, Mary Agnes, 87, and Emily Molin, 85, of Delaware County, and Waltraud “Trudi” Koos, 75, of Montgomery County. All four of them were allegedly murdered.
There’s something uniquely disturbing about the untimely death of an older person. You make it this far, surviving everything life could throw at you, only to meet a violent end at the hands of someone you depend on. Your spouse, son or friend.
Police say Molin was run over – multiple times – by her Darby Borough son last week. He’s in a Maryland prison without bail. He says it was an accident and that she fell out of the van he was driving. Cops don't believe him. Koos was strangled to death by her longtime husband. He was sentenced Tuesday in Norristown. Authorities say he thought she was cheating on him.
