65-yr-old charged in her mother's death


The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has ruled the January death of a 91-year-old woman from Precinct 7/Cockeysville a homicide.

On January 17 at 3:33 p.m., Baltimore County medical personnel were dispatched to the 1000 block of Hidden Moss Drive, 21030. They found 91-year-old Audrey Caslow seated on a toilet, and determined that she had been there for two days. She lived at the home with her daughter, Sharon Caslow.

Sharon Caslow told officers she was aware that her mother was in the bathroom, but did not summon help. The victim was transported to Greater Baltimore Medical Center, where medical personnel determined that she had injuries consistent with being neglected.

Audrey Caslow was transferred to hospice care, where she died 10 days later, on January 27.

The victim's body was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled the cause of death as acute renal failure, and the manner of death a homicide.

On August 15, a Baltimore County Grand Jury returned an indictment for manslaughter against Sharon Caslow. She faces a total of six counts in connection with her mother's death.

Caslow is free on $100,000 bond.
