Slidell duo booked in theft of social security checks

Slidell, La. - St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's investigators have booked two Slidell women with theft after determining they were fraudulently depositing Social Security checks.

At the time of the booking, the pair were already in the St. Tammany Parish Jail. 

Deborah Fisher is awaiting trial on one count of mutilating or disinterring human remains and one count unlawful disposal of remains. 

Heidi Todd is in jail for one count of unlawful disposal of remains.  The two were arrested in March after deputies discovered they had been keeping the body of Fisher's dead father in an ice chest in their apartment for two years.

Detectives continued the initial investigation with an analysis of Social Security Administration records and local bank account records.  Police determined that, after Charles Fisher's death, Fisher and Todd continued to profit from his monthly Social Security income.  Mr. Fisher received $1,315 per month from the S.S.A., which was directly deposited into his checking account.  Deborah Fisher and Todd would electronically transfer the funds into Deborah's account, which the two would use for their monthly living expenses.

The two year fraudulent income totaled $33,974.60.
