Beth Reamer – who police described as Rena Reamer’s caregiver – was charged earlier this week for failing to give her proper medical care during the four years before she died.
It’s unclear what Beth’s relation to Rena was.
The 46-year-old was charged earlier this week after deputies were told she ‘desecrated’ the elderly woman’s body and transported it across state lines.
Rena’s remains still have not been located.
Other relatives told police that Beth did everything she could to stop them from finding Rena’s body.
Cops believe the elderly woman died in August 2017.
They say Beth continued using her Social Security benefits afterwards.
