State investigating death of 92-year-old woman who walked out of Bedford nursing home

BEDFORD, Ohio — State authorities are investigating after nurses at a Bedford nursing home found a 92-year-old patient dead outside the facility Saturday morning.

Bedford police went to the Woodside Senior Living facility on Rockside Road just before 7 a.m. Saturday after nurses discovered the body of Annie Luckett on the facility’s back

patio, according to a copy of a police report released Monday. Luckett, of Cleveland, lived in a memory care unit and was unable to care for herself on her own, the report

said. Staff checked on Luckett at 12:30 a.m. Saturday and she was awake and in her room, the report said. Nurses found the woman about 6 a.m. lying on the ground

outside, the report said. The report said the woman likely walked out of the building through an alarmed door without tripping the alarm and then could not get back inside.

She likely slipped on the ice and could not get back up, the report said. Police said there did not appear to be any foul play involved in Luckett’s death. Bedford

police said that the Ohio Attorney General’s Office is investigating the incident. ©2023 Advance Local Media LLC. Visit cleveland.com. Distributed by Tribune Content
