Homeless Woman's Helpers Lose Bequest

November 09, 1994| Associated Press

DEDHAM, Mass. — A state lawmaker and an aide who inherited about $200,000 apiece from a homeless woman they had helped were stripped of the money Tuesday by a judge who ruled that they took advantage of a mentally ill woman.

The woman, Mary Guzelian, had rewritten her will in 1981 to benefit Rep. Kevin Fitzgerald, his aide Patricia McDermott and a third person who acted as executor of the will, after McDermott helped Guzelian fight eviction.
