ISP investigating Murray Developmental Center death

Posted:
CENTRALIA - The Illinois State Police are investigating the death of a resident at the Warren G. Murray Developmental Center in Centralia.

According to a Thursday release from acting Illinois Department of Human Services Secretary Gregory Bassi, staff members gave inconsistent statements in relation to the resident's death, and this led to the death being referred to the IDHS Office of the Inspector General.  Bassi says that the inspector general's review of the death prompted a referral to the Illinois State Police.

Bassi also says that two staff members have been placed on administrative leave, pending the outcome of the Illinois State Police's investigation.
