Disabled Patients and Abuse

at 9:00 AM
 (Monica Lam/California Watch)

A collaborative investigation between KQED and media partner California Watch has found that sloppy investigations at California state-run homes for the disabled have left hundreds of official abuse cases -- some even involving suspicious death -- unsolved. Some 1,800 men and women with developmental disabilities such as cerebral palsy live in five state-run facilities.

Guests:

Jim Beall, California assemblymember (D) representing the 24th District

Larry Ingraham, retired San Diego police officer and brother of Van Ingraham, a patient in the state's Fairview Developmental Center who died in 2007

Ryan Gabrielson, public safety reporter for California Watch
