Beth Reamer – described by police as Rena’s caretaker – was charged earlier this week for not providing her with proper medical care for the four years before she died.

It’s unclear what Beth’s relationship with Rena was, whether she was her daughter or niece.

The 46-year-old was charged earlier this week after officers were told she had “desecrated” the elderly woman’s body and transported it across state lines.

Rena’s remains have still not been found.

Other family members told police that Beth was doing everything she could to avoid finding Rena’s body.

Police believe the elderly woman died in August 2017.

They say that Beth continued to use her allowance after that.
