Alleged embezzlement at Olmito hospice

Authorities are probing alleged acts of embezzlement at a home for the terminally ill in Olmito.

A top administrator of the Sunshine Haven home is accused of milking tens of thousands of dollars from the Cameron County facility.

The Cameron County District Attorney's Office is investigating the case.

Nurse Lois del Castillo said the money was supposed to be used to expand the center for their indigant patients and families.

She told Action 4 News the organization is pursuing criminal charges because the alleged acts of embezzlement have hurt the people who need it most.
