BATON ROUGE- Police arrest a man for neglecting to take care of an elderly, 96-year-old man, leaving him to die.
59-year-old Wayne T. Warren has been charged with 1 count of manslaughter and 1 count of cruelty to the infirmed after police found the elderly man in critical condition, covered in bugs.
The victim, identified as William D. Warren, was found at 10:44 p.m. Feb. 4, 2020 by Baton Rouge Emergency Medical Services due to the victim not being able to eat or drink. Upon their arrival, EMS discovered the man slumped over in a recliner with his face stuck to the armrest. He was covered in urine, vomit, feces, roaches, maggots, and other bugs crawling on him and the floor around him.
The suspect, Wayne T. Warren told police he was responsible for caring for the elderly man and knew he was not capable of caring for himself, however, he assumed the victim would "rebound like he has before," the police report states.
The 96-year-old man was transported to Our Lady of the Lake Hospital where he was treated for major injuries, consistent with bedsores and poor circulation. The victim also had injuries on his left shoulder, left abdomen, buttocks, right inner thigh, left knee, left foot, right foot, groin, and other small injuries about the body.
After treatment, medical staff determined the man would not survive the injuries. William was placed into Compassus Hospice on Feb. 5th, 2020, and passed away at the facility on Feb. 7, 2020.
According to the police report, Compassus Hospice was unable to make a death notification for several days.
Baton Rouge Homicide Division was notified of the incident on Feb. 12 and Affiant immediately took over the investigation. After conducting a search warrant at the residence to gather evidence, officials learned that the recliner in poor condition that the victim was found in was disposed of. While inside, Affiant also noticed numerous bugs, a foul smell, and a nonfunctioning toilet full and covered in feces.
The East Baton Rouge Coroner's Office conducted an autopsy on Feb. 13 and all injuries were examined by Pathologist Doctor V. Vo. Injuries were photographed by Baton Rouge Crime Scene.
Doctor Vo declared the death was a result of Sepsis, due to multiple decubitis ulcers, neglect, and malnutrition. Because of the neglect, fatal wounds formed and continued to worsen, ultimately causing the death of the victim, according to the police report.
PALA MESA, Calif. (AP) — A charter bus swerved on a rain-slicked Southern California highway and rolled down an embankment Saturday, killing three people and injuring 18 others, authorities said.
Several passengers were thrown from the bus, and one of the dead was trapped under the vehicle after it landed on its roof shortly after 10 a.m. off Interstate 15 in Pala Mesa, an unincorporated community about 45 miles (72 kilometers) north of San Diego, North County Fire Protection District spokesman John Choi said.
“There were no seat belts on this bus,” Choi said. Another person who died was trapped inside the bus, he added.
The wounded were taken to three hospitals with varying injuries, Choi said.
A California Highway Patrol officer told the San Diego Union-Tribune thatone of the patients was in critical condition and three others suffered major injuries.
The bus driver suffered minor injuries and remained at the scene. He apparently swerved and lost control of the bus, Officer Mark Latulippe said.
The bus was going from Los Angeles to San Ysidro, the San Diego neighborhood just north of the U.S.-Mexico border, the officer said. Passengers included adults and children.
Authorities have not released the name of the bus owner.
Rescue crews were concerned that the bus may slide farther down the embankment and had to secure the vehicle before using ropes to pull up the victims to the roadside, Choi said. Crews planned to pull the bus from the embankment and recover the body pinned under it, he said.
The crash caused southbound traffic on I-15, a major route connecting San Diego to inland regions of Southern California, to back up for miles.
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — A court temporarily blocked the U.S. government from sending up to 50 people infected with a new virus from China to a Southern California city for quarantine after local officials argued that the plan lacked details about how the community would be protected from the outbreak.
A federal judge issued a temporary restraining order late Friday to halt the transportation of anyone who has tested positive for the new coronavirus to Costa Mesa, a city of 110,000 in the heart of Orange County. U.S. District Judge Josephine L. Stanton scheduled a hearing on the issue Monday.
City officials quickly sought court intervention after learning from the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services that U.S. officials planned to start moving patients to a state-owned facility in Costa Mesa as early as Sunday.
They said in court documents that local officials were not included in the planning effort and wanted to know why the Fairview Developmental Center was considered a suitable quarantine site and what kind of safeguards were in place to prevent the possible transmission of the virus that has spread worldwide.
“The city has not been part of any of the process that led to the consideration of the site, and it would be unfair to not include us in this kind of significant decision that has great impact on our community,” Mayor Katrina Foley told the Orange County Register.
The California Health and Human Services Agency said in a statement Saturday that it was working with federal authorities to find a place for people who were evacuated from a quarantined cruise ship in Japan and taken to Travis Air Force Base in Northern California.
Anyone who tested positive for the virus cannot stay at the base and must be sent either to the hospital or if they’re not sick enough, isolated until the infection has cleared.
The Fairview center in Costa Mesa is being considered as a place to send them.
“If Fairview were chosen, the federal government would be responsible for providing health care — easing the burden on our hospitals during flu season — and for providing robust security to ensure the public safety and public health of the surrounding community,” the state’s statement said.
Fairview is a 109-acre campus that was once home to about 2,000 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It’s now nearly empty as the state has moved residents into community homes and other living situations.
A state lawmaker whose district includes Costa Mesa said he feared the virus could travel through the facility’s air vents.
“The coronavirus patients should be treated humanely and with the best medical care available. But the first priority must be to contain the virus and make sure it doesn’t jump into the local population,” Republican state Sen. John Moorlach said.
Globally, the virus has infected nearly 78,000 people in 29 countries, and more than 2,300 have died.
