Many years ago, I wrote my obituary on Huffington Post as a way to explain to the asses (I mean masses) at that site what it's like to be an autism parent and how we say "we can never die." (I'd link it, but they scrubbed my 7 years of FREE writing because I sometimes wrote about vaccines and autism.) The world is not ready to care for our adult children. Housing and residential care is going to be a nightmare.
Below is a news report about a disabled man (he not have autism) who was "missing" for months and then found and dead in the basement of his care facility. "No foul play." I call bullshit. His body was so decomposed there is no funeral. Rest in peace Kam Franks.
His sister calls him a wanderer, so it wasn't a total surprise he went missing, she said. But months passed and the family heard nothing.
Until last Saturday we are told staff at Faithful Helping Hands, was cleaning out a basement room, when they found Kam dead.
"How do they not smell a body in the summer," Kai said. "How do you dismiss that? She said we get mice sometimes in the summer."
One of the owners of the facility told FOX 2 by phone, there was no odor blaming Detroit police for not checking the basement back in March. She didn't have an answer for why here own staff didn't look there.
