Police requested DNA samples from male employees at a Hacienda HealthCare facility in Phoenix, Ariz. after a woman — who has been in a coma for over 10 years — gave birth to a baby boy!
John A. Micheaels, a lawyer for the 29-year-old woman’s family, released a statement Jan. 8 describing them as “outraged, traumatized, and in shock by the abuse and neglect of their daughter.”
A member of the San Carlos Apache Tribe, the woman has been described as having been in a persistent vegetative state since a near-drowning accident as a teenager.
Her name has not been released to The National ENQUIRER and other media outlets because she appears to be the victim of felony sexual abuse.
She gave birth on Dec. 29, and the attorney’s statement assured that “the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for.”
Also on Jan. 8, Hacienda HealthCare acknowledged via statement that it was cooperating with Phoenix investigators, who had served a search warrant to collect DNA samples from all men on the facility’s staff.
The day before, Hacienda CEO Bill Timmons (pictured) resigned, and the company’s board issued a statement saying that Hacienda “will accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation.”
