According to WBTV, Sandy and Casey Parsons, the adoptive parents of missing teen Erica Parsons, will be in a “legal quagmire” if they try to sell their home. The home is the last place investigators can corroborate that Erica Parsons lived. Erica’s adoptive grandfather, William Parsons, bought the home in April of 2011 after it had been seized in foreclosure.
At issue is whether or not the Parsons have the legal right to sell the home that they live in. William Parsons told the Salisbury Post that he isn’t selling the home and he didn’t give them permission to. Casey Parsons told WBTV that they do have a right to sell the house and that Sandy Parson’s parents are forcing them out.
“They’re trying to be so mean,” Parsons said. “We have the paper. We’re the ones that did the work, put the well down, put the air conditioning unit in, we have thousands in that house.”
She claims to have a contract proving that she and her husband have an agreement with William Parsons to purchase the house, but he broke the contract by not accepting their payments since August.
“I’m so tired of all these people accusing us of lies,” Parsons told WBTV. “I want to be able to prove one time…we do have the right to sell this house.” (more…)
