Regla Bec­quer, a 49-year-old Texas care­giv­er, is fac­ing seri­ous charges and an ongo­ing inves­ti­ga­tion into the deaths of 20 peo­ple under her care. Bec­quer, the own­er of mul­ti­ple care homes under her LLC “Love and Car­ing for Peo­ple,” is accused of leav­ing patients in squalor while raid­ing their bank accounts.

Uncovering a Pattern of Deaths

As author­i­ties inves­ti­gat­ed Bec­quer, they dis­cov­ered a dis­turb­ing pat­tern of deaths among her patients. Ini­tial­ly, she was charged with abuse and endan­ger­ing patients, but the inves­ti­ga­tion has now expand­ed. Bec­quer has been charged with mur­der and the author­i­ties have iden­ti­fied an addi­tion­al 7 vic­tims who died in her cus­tody since Sep­tem­ber 2022.

Alleged Abuse and Neglect

Bec­quer is accused of var­i­ous forms of abuse and neglect, includ­ing poi­son­ing patients, pre­vent­ing them from attend­ing sched­uled doc­tor’s appoint­ments, and strate­gi­cal­ly mov­ing patients between homes to avoid detec­tion. Some patients were alleged­ly left in deplorable con­di­tions, such as sleep­ing on bare mat­tress­es cov­ered in feces.

Financial Exploitation

In addi­tion to the alleged abuse and neglect, Bec­quer is also accused of steal­ing mon­ey and assets from her patients. This includes claims that she spent $100,000 of one patien­t’s mon­ey in a six-month span and even took pos­ses­sion of a patien­t’s home through a forged will.

Unraveling the Reign of Terror

The inves­ti­ga­tion into Bec­quer’s care homes began after police were called to one of the homes in Novem­ber 2022, where they found mul­ti­ple patients in poor con­di­tions. This led to a wider probe that has uncov­ered the full extent of Bec­quer’s alleged crimes and the dev­as­tat­ing impact on the lives of her vul­ner­a­ble patients.
