A psychiatrist conducted an evaluation on her and stated she was mentally sound, cognizant, and aware, despite her habit of standing still for long periods of time in public areas.”

Her niece, who asked the media not to be named, stated, “My aunt was a normal woman until her mother died many years ago. Three years ago, she was reportedly raped by her sister’s husband. After that, she began to stand still for extended periods of time. We filed reports to the police and the suspect in her rape was jailed for two years. He was, however, released last year.”
