Becquer operated an allegedly illegal assisted living care facility, Love & Caring for People LLC, the outlet reported. 

Arlington police alerted the public in March about their investigation into the facility's activities, USA Today reported. Police shared that they were looking into multiple allegations of abuse, neglect, and fraud against Becquer's boarding homes.


Becquer has been charged with one death. Arlington police claim that she could be connected to as many as 19 additional deaths, CBS News reported.

"After everything we've learned, I think it's clear to say she did not love or care for anyone," said Lt. Kimberly Harris, Arlington Police. The facility allegedly operated five homes in Tarrant County, where adults in need were given supervised care, CBS News reported.

"We were deeply concerned about what we saw in these homes and what we had heard up until that point. Today, I am here to tell you that's just the tip of the iceberg," said Harris.

Since September 2022, authorities have identified 20 alleged victims who utilized Becquer's facility and turned up dead, CBS News reported. Most of the reported clients had been cremated or buried by the time of investigation.

Only two bodies were available for autopsy, one of which was of Pankratz. The autopsy revealed that Pankratz died due to mixed drug toxicity.

Pankratz was found unresponsive in January at an Arlington home on Lake Whitney Drive, Fox4 reported. Hours before Pankratz died, his family alleged that he had slurred speech and told them that he had been given a handful of pills.


On investigation, it was found that the drugs administered to Pankratz were not prescribed to him by his doctors, CBS reported. Based on findings, the Tarrant County Medical Examiner ruled Pankratz's death as a homicide.

"I've been doing this as an officer for 23 years now and I have never seen anything like this... we had to keep digging and going and going, and it's been disturbing to find out the details about these folks, to go to homes that people thought were a good place, and to find out it was not vetted. It's very disturbing," said Chris Powell, Arlington Police, CBS reported.

Investigators also allegedly found evidence that indicated that Becquer allegedly took possession of her clients' belongings, such as phones, cars, and in some cases, their house, CBS reported. Currently, authorities are looking into every client of the facility. 

"Whether it's 20 or 22 or more, everyone is going to get looked at completely. We are just going down the list and doing a full investigation of each one," said Harris, CBS reported.
