Mary Melero Wiki – Mary Melero Biography

A pair of New Mexico caregivers were accused of torturing a disabled autistic woman who died just weeks after police found her battered and crying in a van headed for the Mexican border, prosecutors said. Mary Melero, 38, was so battered she was unable to stand and unresponsive when she was found on February 23 in Texas near the US border.

She died at an area hospital on April 7, New Mexico Attorney General Raul Torrez said at a news conference last week.

“In my nearly 20 years as a prosecutor, I can tell you without a doubt that the injuries that Mary sustained, that the harm that was inflicted on her was not torture of any kind,” Torrez said. “She had multiple bedsores and pressure sores that were so severe that she even had exposed bones,” he said. “There were marks, abrasions and ligature marks that indicated that she had, in fact, been restrained at some point.”

Mary Melero was tortured by caregiver

On Wednesday, Angelita Chacon, 52, and Patricia Hurtado, 42, were charged with abuse, neglect, false imprisonment, criminal conspiracy and failure to report, USA Today reported.

Luz Scott, 53, who was driving the van, was charged with false imprisonment and conspiracy to commit false imprisonment, the outlet reported. Torrez said Chacon was paid about $5,000 a month to care for Melero through the state-funded At Home Advocacy program, which is designed to provide in-home care for the disabled.


Chacón lived in Melero’s house in Rio Rancho, near Albuquerque. She told police that Melero had spent three days in a bathtub with her own feces and her urine, and she admitted that she hit the victim in the face by throwing a boombox at her.

Authorities said 38-year-old Mary Melero was so severely abused inside her Rio Rancho home that it amounted to “torture.” Melero was found crying in a van headed for Mexico in February and died at a Texas hospital in April.
KTSM Chacon and Hurtado were in a romantic relationship and shared caregiving duties, and they appointed Scott to take Melero to Mexico, presumably for medical attention, according to a court affidavit obtained by USA Today.

Authorities said Melero was crying when she was found wrapped in a blanket on the floor of the truck with dirty bandages covering her open wounds.Read More…….
