On July 24, 2012, as her husband, John Benton, was leaving for work, he sent Titan back upstairs to stay with his wife. Titan went upstairs and became agitated running back and forth from the bedroom to the front door.
John went upstairs to check on his wife, Gloria had suffered an aneurysm, fell and severely fractured her skull. Doctors told John she likely would have died if not found quickly.
