Illinois Mother Leaves Disabled Daughter in Tennessee


An Illinois woman who abandoned her 19-year-old mentally disabled daughter at a bar in Tennessee won’t be charged with a crime.

 

Eva Cameron of Algonquin says she left her 19-year-old daughter Lynn at that bar because she could no longer care for the girl, since Illinois has scaled back programs to help those with disabilities.

 

Eva Cameron has signed her daughter to be a ward of the state in Tennessee, because she says that state has a much better health care system to care for the young woman.

 

Tennessee officials had initially threatened to charge the mother, but have now determined that she did not commit a crime, since her daughter is over the age of 18.
