Illinois State Police are investigating the death of a Murray Developmental Center resident.
The resident was pronounced dead on March 30th at St. Mary’s Hospital in Centralia.
An autopsy was declined by the legal guardian and the cause of death was listed as natural causes.
During a review, staff became concerned about discrepancies among statements made by those responsible for the care of the resident.
The Illinois Department of Human Services Office of the Inspector General was then called in to investigate, and that office subsequently referred the matter to ISP.
The investigation is ongoing.
