Modern Day Psycho Impersonates Mother

NY man charged with impersonating dead mother

By TOM HAYS – NEW YORK (AP) — Irene Prusik has been dead for six years. But in April, someone showed up at the Department of Motor Vehicles in Brooklyn to renew her driver's license.

The explanation given by prosecutors rivals the Hitchcock classic "Psycho": It was her son, in drag.

Thomas Parkin, 49, was charged Wednesday in the bizarre plot to impersonate his deceased mother so he could collect $117,000 in government benefits. He and the man accused of being his accomplice, Mhilton Rimolo, pleaded not guilty to grand larceny, criminal impersonation and other charges.
Looks like this Psycho will be spending a long time behind bars!

That is unreal. What people won't do for money. The government has been supporting him for the past six years and it looks we are going to get to support him for a few more.

@ReRe, crazy, scary, creepy...all of the above! He even painted his finger nails! Sick! Thanks for commenting!

@Rae, Unreal indeed! I saw it on the news this morning and they couldn't help but laugh at the press conference! Of course, it's not funny, when like you say, now we get to support this psycho now.

I saw him on the news. He's creepy and I'm glad he got caught!

John said...

kenju, He certainly is creepy! I'm glad he got busted too what a weirdo!

I'm going to check out your wedding posts before they get lost in the shuffle...maybe it will inspire me, since we have two weddings Saturday (I'd rather do funerals LOL).

He found it hard to let his mommy dearest go. ;0)

John said...

@Dr. Monkey, yeah he found it hard to let her go alright...well at least he found it hard to let go of her money!

John, isn't this a hoot!? I saw this story on CNN, and right away I thought of Anthony Perkins and "Psycho". What a great movie that was, and what a great actor Anthony Perkins was. One of my favorites!

Mental telepathy ... I was just thinking about you this morning, and thinking I haven't had time to visit some of my favorite bloggers lately, et voila! there you were. Synchronicity. :-)

Have a great day!

@Jo, A modern day Norman Bates indeed! Anthony Perkins was such a great actor. I can't remember the titles but, saw several other good movies that he was in during his younger years.

Thanks for taking time to stop by! I know how busy you are and it really warms my heart to hear from you. Thanks!

Enjoy your day and have a great weekend!

I think of him more as greedy than crazy. He'd be a great bankster. He has the ethics down.
