Description

We found that scores of developmentally disabled people in the state's care had died in recent years from abuse, neglect or medical error - from bathtub scaldings to chokings to ignored illnesses. Although the state keeps secret the identity of those who die under their oversight, we were able to identify nearly every victim and told many of their stories, giving a name and a fact to an often-ignored population.
