(WISH) — A retirement and assisted-living center, closed after reports of insects on a dead body, has gained the attention of the Indiana attorney general.
On Sept. 22, an employee contacted police after finding Room 29’s resident, a 45-year-old woman who lived in the apartment, facedown in vomit and dead.
Police said an employee found cockroaches crawling on a dead resident, but determined it was not not a criminal matter.
Roland’s Retirement Club closed Nov. 30.
Aaron Negangard, Indiana chief deputy attorney general, said Monday, “When you find a person who has been deceased and cockroaches are crawling out of the person’s mouth and nose, this is someone who obviously not been attended to properly.”
