OCALA - A woman who reportedly confessed to Marion County sheriff's deputies that she stuffed the body of her 83-year-old mother into two black garbage bags and dumped her along a dirt road so she could cash her retirement check was arrested Tuesday and charged with failure to report a death, a misdemeanor.
Inspector Mike Mongeluzzo arrested Debra Loreth, 53, of Belleview. On Monday, Mongeluzzo learned from the Medical Examiner's Office that the cause of Jeanne Vasa's death was "undetermined."
Lake County Sheriff's Sgt. John Herrell said detectives have filed paperwork with the State Attorney's Office seeking a charge of improper disposal of a body and one count of uttering a false instrument, for allegedly cashing her mother's railroad retirement check.
Loreth, who was at the Marion County Jail Tuesday night, refused an interview request from the Star-Banner.

“Debra Loreth, 53, of Belleview.”
How apropos! Belleview Hospital?
Her health declined and she just fell apart.
The garbage bags should be over that things head.
“TWO garbage bags?!?”
You’ve seen her daughter - you tell me.....
Failure to report a death is a crime but dumping a body is not? Sounds like the law is bass-ackwards.
And sealed off with duct tape.
You may have a point there. I wouldn’t forget the rubber band on mine...
“Norman! What do you think you’re doing? Don’t you touch me, don’t! NORMAN! Put me down, put me down, I can walk on my own... “
No, Bellevue Hospital. My brother was born there.
REad the article, they already filed paperwork for illegal disposal of a body and uttering a forged instrument.
Piece of work, eh?
No, not even with yours.
She’s got a nose like mine, but I’m a crotchety old man so it fits me.
Is that a photo of the dead mother’s body?
