A 69-year-old Vegas lady is charged with defrauding Social To safeguard years after she allegedly dismembered her dead husband’s body and put his remains within the trash, based on a federal criminal complaint.
Nancy Shedleski deposited $121,000 of her husband’s retirement benefits after he died in 2015 dying and Social Security officials didn’t know anything was wrong until they received an anonymous tip in 2019 the husband had disappeared, based on the complaint filed a week ago in Nevada.
The complaint, which billed Shedleski with thievery of presidency money, identified the husband only as “J.P.S.” and stated he is at his 70s as he died.
Survivor’s benefits for Shedleski in 2019 if her husband’s dying continues to be reported could have been $14,000, but her husband’s benefits which were distributed that year totaled $24,000, the complaint stated.
When contacted by federal officials, Shedleski initially stated her husband was traveling but later accepted to dismembering his body and getting rid of his remains after he died in their Pennsylvania home, the complaint stated.
“Shedleski confirmed there wasn’t any ambulance, no hospitalization, no funeral, no funeral with no cremation,” the complaint stated.
The complaint didn’t specify the husband’s reason for dying or say in which the couple resided in Pennsylvania before Nancy Shedleski gone to live in Las Vegs in 2017.
The complaint stated her husband last received health care in 2015 at Jefferson Regional Clinic in Jefferson Hillsides, that is near Pittsburgh.
Shedleski was arrested last Thursday and made an appearance in the court in Vegas on Friday. She wasn’t requested to go in a plea and it was released by herself recognizance pending a November. 5 court.
Her court-hired defense lawyer, Wendi Overmyer, didn’t immediately react to an emailed request comment with respect to her client.
