Funeral Home Director Accused of Stealing Thousands of Dollars (KY. USA)


A local funeral home director has been arrested and is facing several felony charges.  Metro Police arrested Maureen Purcell on Thursday.
She's a funeral director at Ratterman Brothers Funeral Home.  Police say she stole thousands of dollars from an elderly woman whose husband died.
Detectives with Crimes Against Seniors say Purcell was able to steal the money by becoming the woman's power of attorney.
Det. John Fogle of LMPD Crimes against Seniors says, "She admitted that she basically had some bad credit, had gotten herself into some civil lawsuits, and was basically taking advantage of a situation.  She also used the term that she robbed Peter to pay Paul."
Purcell was taken to Metro Corrections, but she has already been released on bail.  Meanwhile, police suspect there could be other victims.
