Take these two out and kill them.

A Florida woman and her boyfriend were arrested last week for
scamming an 82-year-old veteran out of his life savings to fuel
their drug habit after the man told a crisis line he wanted to
kill himself over his empty bank account, authorities said.

Jessica Henry, 31, and Gregory Dushan, 28, coerced more than
$50,000, along with property, from the U.S. Coast Guard veteran,
DeLand police said in a news release. The couple allegedly spent
more than $500 of the money on drugs daily.

The 82-year-old victim called the Veterans Crisis Center and
told the agency that his bank account had a negative balance and
he felt the only solution was to end his life, the release said.
The center immediately called police.

The victim, who hasn’t been identified, told officers that he
first met Henry about three years ago. He started giving the
woman money after she claimed she wasn’t able to feed her
children and didn’t have transportation to take them to school,
the release said.

Henry contacted the victim again six months ago, claiming she
needed $350 a day to pay for urine tests as part of her
probation for a recent arrest, WKMG-TV reported, citing an
arrest report. Dushan, pretending to be Henry's probation
officer, also called the victim daily to demand between $150 and
$1,000.

Dushan threated to seize the victim’s car and throw him in jail
if the demands weren’t met, police said. The veteran eventually
gave his car to Dushan. Police said they have since recovered
the vehicle.

Henry and Dushan were charged with exploiting an elderly person
between amounts of $20,000 and $100,000. Dushan was separately
charged with impersonating a correction/probation officer. The
couple could face more charges, police said.

A DeLand police spokesman told WKMG that the department is
looking into ways to help the 82-year-old, who has been unable
to pay his rent because of the incident.
