Body exhumed in nursing home investigation

Comments Off

The body of a second deceased resident from a McHenry nurisng home has been exhumed.

The body was removed from its resting place as part of an ongoing criminal investigation into allegations that residents at the facility were deliberately given fatal medication overdoses.

This has been a fascinating story to watch develop. It involves allegations that a member of the nursing staff was giving residents overdoses of morphine which killed multiple residents.

A look at the numbers showed that there was a higher than expected number of deaths at the facility. No one staff member has been publicly identified as being the culprit.
