    A US family has demanded an investigation after its patriarch reportedly
    died within days of having a stroke in his home and being found but left
    on the floor by a real estate agent who never called anyone for help.

    Loved ones of the dead man – 69-year-old Randy Vaughan of North Carolina –
    are raising questions about whether the realtor should have been expected
    to do more. The state agency that oversees realtors in North Carolina has indicated it is opening an inquiry into the case and is scheduling
    interviews with Vaughan’s family about his death, the Winston-Salem
    Journal newspaper reported Friday.

    “It’s about basic decency, caring for your fellow human beings and being a professional,” Vaughan’s brother, Doug, said to the Journal.

    The realtor, for her part, reportedly told the Journal she has “an
    attorney involved” and has “no liability”.

    According to the Journal, the Vaughans became worried when they didn’t see
    or hear from Randy on his grandson’s birthday. His daughter, Heather,
    drove to his home on 14 February and didn’t see his truck in the driveway,
    so she called authorities to check whether he was at a weekend house along
    High Rock Lake that he was selling.

    Local sheriff’s office deputies found his truck outside the home, and
    after using a lockbox code to go inside, they found Randy Vaughan on the
    ground unresponsive, the Journal reported. Doctors determined that he’d
    had a stroke, and they took him by helicopter to a hospital in North

    Things for his family got even worse when they learned from a realtor who
    was working with Vaughan to sell the house that another agent had been to
    his place on 13 February to show it to a client. In an online feedback
    form, that agent described seeing a disrobed Vaughan on the floor and
    fearing that he was possibly dead. But, after hearing Vaughan groan, the
    agent speculated that perhaps he had too much to drink while watching the
    Super Bowl the previous night, and she simply left – without calling for emergency medical help – after she asked if he was OK and got no answer.

    “I didn’t want him waking up to me standing over him!” wrote the agent, identified as Ellen-Nora Deese, according to the Journal.

    After doctors informed Vaughan’s relatives that he had suffered multiple strokes and developed pneumonia, they opted to move him into hospice care
    this past Monday. He died Wednesday afternoon, not long after having
    retired from a career in the heating and air industry, the Journal

    Meanwhile, Vaughan’s brother Doug called Deese’s company. Doug Vaughan
    told the Journal that he read the feedback form during a brief
    conversation with the company’s head agent and mentioned the state’s Good Samaritan law, which says that anyone in a position to render first aid
    can’t be sued for civil damages for any actions or omissions as long as
    they didn’t intentionally inflict wrongdoing.

    Doug Vaughan recalled her saying: “If there’s any litigation, I’m going to
    have to refer you to my lawyer.” He recalled replying with: “Nobody said anything about litigation. I just need you to be aware.”

    The newspaper contacted Deese and reported that she told the outlet that
    she had an attorney involved.

    “I have no liability there,” Deese added, according to the Journal. She
    said she would defer to her company’s broker-in-charge for further

    But neither the attorney nor the broker-in-charge had returned messages
    from the Journal. Deese didn’t immediately respond to a request for
    comment from the Guardian.

    Doug Vaughan told the Journal that he contacted North Carolina’s real
    estate commission to investigate because “no one in their right mind would leave a 69-year-old individual on the floor who is non-responsive without reporting it”.

    “I know she assumed he was drunk,” Doug Vaughan told the Journal. “That
    was a terribly wrong assumption – my brother doesn’t drink.

    “Simply, as a professional and as a human in this life, assumptions are
    wrong and can be deadly.”

    Vaughan’s son, Jamie, added in separate remarks to the Journal: “The
    reality is, it could have been a different story. With a stroke, it’s
    critical to get care in the first few hours. This is the world we live in today?”

    Here's the fat bitch realtor, Ellen-Nora Deese.
