Man with Dementia's Family Abandons Him in UK Parking Lot

Roger curryRoger Curry, a 76-year-old man with dementia, was flown to Britain and dumped in a parking lot by his wife and son. In November 2015, Curry was discovered outside of the bus station in Hereford. When cops arrived, he had two other men with him, one of which had an American accent. However, as soon as paramedics arrived, the American man disappeared, leaving cops to believe that he was a relative who was abandoning Curry. He spent the next eight months in a British nursing home, while cops were trying to figure out his identity. Curry’s son has claimed that he had nothing to do with his father’s abandonment.
