It makes me ill to see these lowlifes move in
So what business is it of yours? If the distant cousin has no right, the law will intervene.

Of course, if the 87-year-old mother was living there and was capable of mostly taking care of herself and did not need nursing care, then that is different, and I would be just as outraged as you seem to be -- and as others have said, I would report the situation to Social Services.

But again, have you DONE anything? Several people have suggested contacting your local elder abuse organization. You keep telling us how bad the situation is, but you haven't told us at all if you have DONE anything.

Ok, you don't know if the cousin hasn't "moved in" to get the house in order so that it can be sold. Who cares if he is driving his car. Moving the 87 year old mother to a nursing home means that they will go over her assets before medicare will pay. Apparently, there are no closer relatives to do this. Someone has to. The 87 year old probably cannot live on her own nor handle what needs to be done. You say he is not even buried yet.
