‘I just want my parents back.’ Woman says company imprisoned her parents in their own home

By: Heather Catallo: For More Info, Go Here…

ngd-In the same way that child caring institutions are being used as vehicles for sex trafficking, guardianship and other control methods are becoming a vehicle to fraudulently steal assets…

A local woman says her parents have been imprisoned in their own home by their caregivers and she wants to know why a Macomb County judge is allowing it to happen. While 7 Investigator Heather Catallo was looking into this story, the caregivers even called the cops on her.

When you become someone’s guardian and conservator, you have total power over that person: You can make medical and legal financial decisions for them. Under Michigan law, family members are given priority to become a loved one’s guardian. So why would a judge give this power to total strangers?

“I just want my parents back,” Marcia Mitchell told Catallo.

Mitchell said she hasn’t seen her father or step-mom in more than a month. All she can do is wonder what’s happening on the other side of the fence separating Barbara Elbridge and Bob Mitchell from their relatives who live right next door.

“They can’t get out, we can’t get in. They can’t take phone calls because their landline’s been disconnected. Their cell phones have been taken, their cars were towed away,” Cousin Gretchen Sommer said. “They’re literally prisoners in their own home, and they’ve done nothing wrong.”
