MORE GRUESOME NEWS REGARDING CHICAGO AREA NURSING HOME
I reported last year (11-26-06) on an Illinois nursing home under investigation. The inquiry focused on possible morphine overdoses at the Woodstock Residence Nursing Home. Investigators interviewed a former employee of Woodstock Residence and believe the deaths suspicious but are not calling them homicides.
The Chicago Tribune now reports a third body has been exhumed as part of an Illinois State Police investigation into six suspicious deaths at the nursing home. Efforts to investigate three other suspicious deaths at the Woodstock Residence have been stymied because the bodies were cremated.
