St. Louis, MO (STL.News) – Tayon Hutchins Fowler, 41, of Florissant, was indicted on Thursday with two counts of wire fraud and two counts of making false statements about being disabled to the Social Security Administration (“SSA”). Fowler surrendered this morning to U.S. Marshals.
The indictment alleges that Fowler submitted an application for disability payments to SSA in 2012, claiming to be depressed and unable to work. After Fowler began receiving periodic disability payments from SSA, she started a home health care business and received more than $100,000 per year from this business during 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017.
