The Indianapolis Star investigates a 1998 move of 108 mentally disabled citizens from institutions to homes run by the nation's largest caregiver, ResCare Inc. The Star discovered that nine people died during the transfer of residents. Workers with ResCare and the Indiana state government both describe the move as being unorganized and lacking funding, but it took the state two years to being investigating it. The Indianapolis Star's investigation of the move prompted the state's governor to demote officials involved with the move.
