The Consequences of not Getting Involved

A good night for Laura Cummings meant being allowed to sleep on the kitchen floor in her family’s North Collins home...Usually in the weeks leading up to her death, she was forced to sleep shackled to a metal chair with a sack over her face...Days were even more nightmarish for the 23-year-old mentally disabled woman, who was held captive and brutalized, allegedly by her own mother and half brother, according to an Erie County Grand Jury indictment returned Friday....Cummings’ short life ended Jan. 21 with a long, tortuous death and a trail of missed chances to get her to safety....A grand jury indicted Cummings’ mother, Eva M. Cummings, 51, and her half brother, Luke J. Wright, 31, on charges related to the homicide, but authorities continued to be confounded by the apparent lack of community concern for the defenseless woman’s welfare.
