In the days preceding her father's death, Jane, who was in New York City, had spoken with her Dad, his nurse, and with her mother. Jane was told by all that there was no need to rush home. Jane also phoned York Hospital. She was told that her father had a follow-up appointment in April with his Doctor, and there was no indication that death was imminent.
Jane's father had a rare disease: "Progressive Supranuclear Palsy." In 2016, he had told her that he had Parkinson's Disease. She had not been told otherwise before composing this obituary for the Yale Law Report.
In any case, in March 2018, Bud Rubin's vital signs were good. He was mentally aware and articulate. He, himself, told Jane that there was no need for her to go to York.
On March 18, 2018, a new home care nurse showed up at her parents' home in York, PA. Jane's mother does not know her name. Jane's mother was in need of some rest. As Bud Rubin had been doing well, she left him with the unknown nurse. A few minutes later — when Bud Rubin was alone in the room with the unknown nurse — he died. The nurse found Jane's mother and told her that her husband had passed away.
On March 18, 2018, Jane was in New York City, getting some work done on her laptop at a Starbuck's on 3rd Avenue between 27th and 28th. That morning, on her LinkedIn profile, Jane had posted a link to the United States Department of Justice website page that discusses "Conspiracy Against Rights." Jane Rubin, a law-abiding United States Citizen, had become a serial victim of cybercrime (and defamation) when she was painting and drawing at Yankee Stadium, from 2006 - 2012. Cumulatively, that crime and defamation against Jane Rubin incorporates a number of federal crimes and civil rights violations.
On the day of her father's death, March 18, 2018, a couple of hours after Jane had posted the Department of Justice link concerning "Conspiracy Against Rights" on her LinkedIn profile, Jane phoned her parents' home in the early afternoon to check up on her Dad. Jane's mother answered. Speaking slowly, her mother told Jane that her father had died 40 minutes ago.
Jane's mother described in detail what had happened: that she had left Bud alone with the unknown nurse to get some rest, and a few minutes later, the nurse told her that Bud had died.
Understandably, Jane's mother sounded like she was in shock. Jane was in shock. She also had not seen her father in person since 2016, so Jane did not get to see him before he died.
Devastated, Jane went to York the next morning for the family gathering at her parents' home. Jane's relatives, some of whom are also gifted attorneys, were also shocked that he had passed away. They had also just seen and/or spoken with him.
The Managing Partner of her father's firm, who gave a eulogy at the service, mentioned that her father had been working from home right up to his unexpected death. No one expected Bud Rubin to die at that time.
During Summer 2019, Jane had phoned "Home Instead" of York, PA, to ask them about her father's death. They claimed that they were not the agency who had been taking care of her Dad when he died. They said that an employee of "Grane Hospice" had been with her Dad on March 18, 2018. At that point, Jane filed a complaint with the Pennsylvania Department of Home Health. She also contacted the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office.
A PA Department of Home Health Surveyor, Cheyenne Recker, went to Grane Hospice to question them. Grane personnel told her that they had no record of her father and had never provided care to him. The Surveyor also went to Home Instead, who claimed that Grane Hospice was responsible for his care that day. Ms. Recker told Jane that she had never encountered a situation like that before, and she said that it was a police matter. Ms. Recker also consulted with her supervisor, and then reiterated to Jane that her supervisor also considered it to be a matter for the police.
It is not clear that homicide or negligence occurred on March 18, 2018, but an ethical police investigation should be undertaken.
At the very least, the death of Harry Jay Rubin should be investigated as a possible wrongful death, as his health was impacted by the numerous crimes against Jane Rubin.
Jane Rubin discussed the issue with law enforcement people and with private investigators who were former high-ranking law enforcement personnel. They agree that Bud Rubin's death should be investigated.
