Authorities in Memorial Village, Texas are searching for a home health care worker who was recorded on a webcam striking a 94-year-old woman she was responsible for caring for in the senior’s home. Identified as Brenda Floyd, she became infuriated as the gaunt, old lady fed her little dog some scraps from her own food.
Floyd is currently wanted on assault with bodily injury to an elderly and disabled person. According to FoxNews, the victim Dorothy Bratten suffers from Alzheimer’s and is barely able to speak. The video, however tells the tragic and disturbing story. On January 1, Floyd was supposed to be helping Mrs. Bratten when the aide spotted the old woman feeding her cute brown dog scraps of people food.
“Why you feed the dog,” Floyd could be heard on the video yelling.
And then the aide could be seen striking the old woman with the snow-white hair five times to the back of her head.
“Get your a** up and go to f***ing bed,” Floyd could be heard screaming at the defenseless woman. “Go ahead, damn it!”
The frail woman slowly rises to her feet with obvious difficulty, but Floyd still wasn’t done berating her.
“I said, why do you feed the dog human food? Why do you keep feeding the dog human food?,” and when the old woman denied it, Floyd became angrier. “Shut the f*** up! Yes, you did! Stop lying to me, bitch.”
Off camera, Floyd is heard striking the woman several more times while yelling at her. The scene is utterly heartbreaking to watch.
The family installed the camera on New Year’s Eve, after becoming concerned about frequent bruises on the elderly woman. The Memorial Village Police is asking for the public’s help finding Floyd, 59, who is described as a Caucasian female with black hair and brown eyes, weighing approximately 215 pounds and 5’2″ in height. She has no past criminal history and had been working for the family for the last three years. The family stated they trusted her and had even helped her buy a car.
Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for Floyd’s arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call 713.222.TIPS (8477) and reference CRIMES (274637). All information remains confidential.
