Relatives: Woman may have been dead for days

Relatives say for a week they tried to contact Imogene Yongue, 88, but her son always had a reason why she wasn’t available.

On Monday, after her grandson called police to do a welfare check, officers found her dead.

“The body is so decomposed that they won’t be able to show the body,” her cousin Juanita Yongue-Eison said.

Now, relatives are thinking about the days when they tried to talk to Jean Yongue.

The woman’s 56-year-old son, William Henry Yongue, is charged with first-degree murder. Police sources say he may have killed her to cover up that he had taken money from her. WBTV
