State Senator Sam McCann (pictured) wants an investigation launched into a possible crime at the Jacksonville Developmental Center. McCann, a Carlinville Republican, says he doesn't know exactly why the records are being altered, or who has given the order. But, he wants the state's inspector general to launch a full investigation to see if the allegations are indeed true.
McCann says someone may be changing permanent medical histories of the residents.
The facility is in the process of being closed and residents are being placed in community care settings. The closure had been placed on hold and is now scheduled to shut down November 21st. State officials say they need to make sure the new homes are properly equipped with things like ramps and other mechanical items.
