Police arrest man suspected of cashing dead mom's checks


(04.24.06) - DELAND, Fla. (AP) -- A man suspected of keeping his mother's dead body in his house for months and cashing her Social Security checks is behind bars. The Volusia County Sheriff's Office says Robert Bea was arrested in Deltona over the weekend. Police say Bea started cashing his mother's Social Security checks in early fall, even before his 77-year-old mother died. Her date of death was reported to Social Security as November 30th. A Volusia County deputy sheriff discovered the dead woman on March 24th while at the home to evict them. Bea lived with his mother. The deputy reports that the son said he needed to use a pay phone down the street to call family to help him move, but he never returned. DeLand police were called when the deputy discovered skeletal remains in a bedroom. Officials say the woman appeared to have died of natural causes.
