MIAMI, June 21 (UPI) — Miami police and neighbors are puzzling over what to do with one-time aspiring starlet who has suddenly lost her home at the age of 88.
Mona Hazel Ludwig was removed from her home after it was sold for $5,300 in delinquent property taxes, The Miami Herald reported Monday.
She was taken to a nearby hospital by state welfare workers in a disoriented state while her welfare is discussed. Police were summoned after she had a spat with a boarder.
When they arrived they found piles of rubbish in the home and moved her out.
Mona Ludwig was once an aspiring cabaret singer, acted in at least one Mexican B-movie and was a cruise ship magician under the name Valentina.
“It’s a terrible story,” said Officer Jeffrey Giordano, a Neighborhood Resource Officer. “People want to step in, but they don’t know what to do. I’ve had people call saying they’ll have their accountant do her bills for her.”
