An elderly woman that was attacked during a home invasion has died after spending weeks in the hospital and the people who police say assaulted her will now face murder charges.
The Black Lives Matter movement is quick to cry foul whenever black people appear to be stereotyped. But what about situations when all the facts point to gang-related activity that is clearly racial and occurs against whites? That was the case in Atlanta, Georgia several weeks ago when a black gang entered the home of an 83-year-old white woman.
That woman, Dorothy Dow, was sleeping in bed when a gang of four black men and women entered her home, beat her and then set her on fire. Dow passed away in the hospital recently from complications from the attack. Her attackers are now being charged with murder.
Meriwether County Sheriff Chuck Smith said the sheriff’s office will file murder charges in the death of Dorothy Dow. Each suspect, of which there are four, now face felony murder and malice murder charges.
According to family members, the 83-year-old Dow had been on a ventilator since the incident occurred at her home in Lone Oak in early August.
Meriwether County Sheriff’s Office officials said the suspects forced their way into her home, beat her, poured something on her and set her on fire.
“Once they entered the home, one individual entered her bedroom where she was already in bed,” Smith said.
He says one man started beating Dow with a gun, breaking several bones in her hand and forearm. She was then set on fire by another suspect. Dow crawled around on the floor of her home searching for a gallon of water she had near a breathing machine, eventually found it and then put the fire out. She then found her cell phone and dialed 911.
“With one hand broken and her arm broken in four places, she pulled the top off of a gallon of water, poured it over her head and put out the fire,” said Dorothy’s daughter-in-law Beth Dow. “She then drug herself into the den on her broken arms to get to her cellphone to call 911. She said, ‘I thought they were going to kill me’. They told her that she was never going to see her sons again.”
Dow had several surgeries due to her injuries which included broken bones and severe burns. She later passed away.
