ST. LOUIS — Police are investigating a 63-year-old woman’s death that occurred about four weeks after her roommate poured hot cooking oil on her during a personal conflict.
Doren Davis was pronounced dead at a hospital Sunday. Police said she was attacked March 7 at the Smiley Manor, 5415 Thekla Avenue, by a 65-year-old roommate who was upset with Davis.
That roommate was arrested March 7 and remains in custody, according to police.
The company’s website states it’s a family-owned assisted living facility that “takes pride in aiding residents to maintain healthy lifestyles by encouraging movement and socializing with their peers.”
Police said the investigation is ongoing.
