Description

After two dangerous patients at Washington state's largest psychiatric hospital escaped, Martha Bellisle used public records to discover that the event was not an isolated incident, as officials claimed, but in fact, about 185 patients had gone missing from the 800-bed facility in less than three years, and the hospital's security was dramatically lacking, even though one of the escaped patients had previously planned to blow up a government building and kill a federal judge.
