This investigation probes a young boy's death in a local orphanage 42 years ago. Aggrieved family members had documentary support for their assertion that the boy was beaten to death. The reporting brought forth dozens of people testifying that they saw the dead boy beaten or relating their own mistreatment at the home over decades. (Dec. 17, 19, 22, 24, 31, 1995 & Jan. 6, 11, 12, 18, 1996)
