Caretaker accused of spending $94K of elderly, disabled man’s savings

Investigators say a disabled, elderly man was evicted from his home and near death after his caretaker used more than $94,000 of his money to fund his own lavish lifestyle and left the man, who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease, alone for days.

Anthony Kehle, 75, of Jupiter, was arrested Sunday by city police. He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on fraud and exploitation of the elderly charges.

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputies began investigating in July 2010, after a woman filed a theft and fraud complaint on behalf of her uncle, Daniel Hull. Stacey Heathcote, 44, of Shadyside, Ohio, said while visiting her uncle, she discovered piles of invoices for unpaid bills, according to Kehle’s arrest report. His phone rang constantly with bill collectors trying to get payment.

Heathcote said she looked through her uncle’s bills and saw his money being used for spa treatments and expensive dinners. Further investigation showed it paid for jewelry, clothing, dinners at Morton’s steakhouse, a plane ticket to Venezuela and a membership at the International Polo Club, among other expenses. It also funded companies owned by Kehle.

Hull died about a year ago. But news of Kehle’s arrest was welcomed by Heathcote, who’s being sued by Kehle for money he says her uncle owed. She said that after learning of his financial state, she moved her uncle to her Ohio home to care for him.

“Who goes and takes somebody’s life savings away from them like it’s theirs?” Heathcote said Monday. “Who does that?”
