Sarasota, FL — An unfortunate reality in the United States is that even the disabled and the elderly are not safe from falling victim to police misconduct. As a recent case in Sarasota County, Florida, illustrates, innocent elderly women are not immune from abuse of power — and even attempted murder — by police.
This case and the following details are close to one of the worst stories The Free Thought Project has ever reported on regarding police.
According to Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight, allegations of Bybee harassing the Elderly Woman led to an investigation that uncovered horrendous criminal acts.
What makes this case even more horrifying is the fact that from an outsider’s perspective, it appeared that Bybee was going out of his way to help the 79-year-old woman. However, upon closer inspection, the true nature of his plan was exposed.
Bybee’s relationship with the elderly woman began after he responded to her call for help. After their first meeting, Bybee would frequently return to her retirement home in what appeared on the surface as genuine concern. Bybee even went so far as to introduce his family to the woman.
However, while things looked normal on the surface, Bybee was allegedly plotting to steal everything he could from this woman he apparently felt was helpless.
The theft started with her dog.
While the 79-year-old was in the hospital, Bybee said he would watch her dog. Instead, the deputy allegedly sold the dog on Craigslist. On Monday, police were able to locate the woman’s beloved and expensive Yorkshire terrier.
