Blunt calls for plan to investigate deaths at mental health facilities
By AP / KWMU
Jefferson City, MO – The governor's order follows a recent series of articles by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch about deaths and injuries that were never investigated at state mental-health facilities.
A Blunt spokeswoman says the plan is unrelated to the newspaper reports.
Blunt says he wants to ensure that no instances of neglect or abuse are overlooked and that there is an investigation into every death.
