Carol Ballweg was the only caretaker of her 20-year-old daughter. The young woman suffers from a terminal illness and is bedridden, so she was completely dependent on her mother.

A few days ago, social services in the city of Troy in Missouri warned the police of a "possible negligence" in the care of the patient and also suspected drug abuse, according to New York Post.

The complaint pointed to concerns about Ballweg, because he repeatedly asked for the pain medication from their daughter to be supplemented beforehand. The girl got fentanyl and oxycodone.

In the face of doubts and because an investigation was also requested, the young woman's doctor ordered a urine test and the results showed that she had no trace of the prescribed drugs in her system.

The police raided the house of Ballweg and there he confessed that he had an addiction to opiates and that for some time he used fentanyl and oxycodone to relieve the pain of his daughter.

The woman was arrested and imprisoned with a deposit of 100 thousand dollars. She was charged with four counts of theft of controlled drugs and two cases of abuse of a person with a disability.
