Our new investigation, Broken Shield, looks at the failure to protect and serve California’s most vulnerable residents.  Our video, Manner of Death: Undetermined, examines one case: After Van Ingraham was found with his neck broken at the Fairview Developmental Center, police at the state institution closed the case without answers. But the patient’s heartbroken brother went after evidence that state investigators had missed.
