Woman Allegedly Drowns 93-Year-Old Grandmother in Kitchen Sink, Bathtub to Dodge Nursing Home Bills
Who will take care of you when you get old? Your children? Your grandchildren? Don’t be ridiculous, they won’t visit you in the nursing home, let alone take care of you, and some of them, like the granddaughter below, may drown you.
How about those Family Values, huh?
I can imagine if you’re a conservative who is new to my blog here, you may at first glance assume I’m a nuclear family hating liberal, when in reality, I am not opposed to the nuclear family, I’m a conservative,
but boy, do I ever see a lot of news headlines over the years that blows a hole in the conservative propaganda that marriage, parenthood, and the nuclear family will repair a sick culture, or that marriage and parenthood can make a person more godly, mature, loving, or ethical.
Being a part of a nuclear family sure as heck didn’t make this woman more loving or godly.
She killed her own grandmother – who was a great person by her own admission – because she didn’t want to raise the funds to put grandma in a nursing home at doctor’s advisement.
Killing grandma to save a buck. Lord Jesus. RIP to the grandmother.

An Ohio woman allegedly drowned her grandmother the day after the 93-year-old was told she needed to be placed in a nursing home, according to reports.
Granddaughter Heidi Matheny, of Eaton, is reportedly facing a murder charge after she confessed to the twisted crime that ended Alice Matheny’s life Tuesday.
“According to the confession, she was just tired of taking care of a grandmother,” Eaton Police Division Chief Steven Hurd said, according to WDTN.
The granddaughter was worried that she could not afford the cost of the nursing home and insurance would not pick up the tab, according to a police report obtained by the television station.
After the granddaughter and grandmother enjoyed some ice cream, Heidi Matheny, 35, snuck up behind Alice Matheny while she was doing dishes and allegedly shoved her head into the sink, holding her there “until the bubbles stopped,” according to the police report.

Ohio woman Heidi Matheny accused of sneaking up behind her grandma while washing dishes, plunging her head underwater ‘until the bubbles stopped’
Nov 17, 2022
An Ohio woman allegedly admitted to drowning her elderly grandmother to avoid nursing home bills.
Heidi Matheny, 35, was arrested for the murder of her 93-year-old grandmother, Alice Matheny.
The granddaughter allegedly admitted she took her grandmother to a doctor’s appointment, where a doctor told them the elderly woman needed to be in a nursing home, something they could not afford and insurance would not cover, according to the Eaton, Ohio, police report.
Heidi said they left the appointment and enjoyed ice cream together.
Back at the house, Heidi allegedly described to officers how she walked up behind her grandmother while the 93-year-old woman was doing dishes and pushed her head into the sink, holding her there “until the bubbles stopped,” according to the police report cited by WDTN.
The 35-year-old allegedly said she then brought her grandmother to the bathtub to make sure she was dead.
“It’s nothing that she did,” Heidi allegedly said during a police interview. “She’s not – She’s the perfect freaking grandma.”
“According to the confession, she was just tired of taking care of a grandmother,” Eaton Police Division Chief Steven Hurd said. “It’s difficult not to take this to heart when you have a 35-year-old granddaughter who allegedly drowned her grandmother of 93 years of age in the bathtub.”
After the deed was done, Heidi left the apartment through a window and walked to the nearby sheriff’s office.
The Eaton Police Division said officers were dispatched to the 300 block of East Somers Street on a report of a possible homicide at approximately 5:54 p.m. on Tuesday.
Upon arrival, officers found Alice Matheny dead in the bathtub as Heidi had described.
The granddaughter was arrested and booked into Preble County Jail on a murder charge. Though, the police department said formal charges are pending from the Preble County Prosecutor’s Office.
The grandmother was transported to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office for an autopsy.
