Detroit Nursing Home Victim Dies Due To Complications From Abuse (Not COVID)
This past May, Jaden Hayden, 20, posted videos of himself beating up an elderly man in a nursing home. There were multiple videos where he just pummeled Norman Bledsoe, 75, and other elderly. Hayden would say things about how African Americans are the chosen people and the Corona Virus is God's punishment for the LGBTQ. Bledsoe was left with four broken fingers, broken ribs, and a broken jaw after the altercations with Hayden and since then he has had been depressed and refusing to eat.
"According to Bledsoe’s nephew Kevin, who confirmed his uncle’s death on Monday, after the attack, Bledsoe had been depressed and not eating properly.
“His eating habits went downhill after (the alleged assault), and he lost quite a bit of weight,” he told The Detroit News. Kevin Bledsoe said he could not visit his uncle because of restrictions related to coronavirus, stating, “We finally were able to see him last week. He wasn’t doing very good. I guess there just wasn’t anything else they could do for him.”
“The two had been paired up after Hayden was diagnosed with COVID-19 and needed to be quarantined. Per Michigan policy at the time, infected people were sent to nursing homes as a way to isolate them from the rest of the state to avoid spreading the virus further. The protocol drew strong criticism from many due to the residents who already lived in nursing homes,” Fox 2 Detroit noted.
Bledsoe's family is planning on moving forward with a lawsuit against the nursing home.
Hayden should be charged for murder at this point, his attacks led to the death of Bledsoe. The hateful 20-year-old should have the book thrown at him, he was attacking the defenseless and should never be allowed back into society. He is lucky that the family didn't get a hold of him before authorities did.
