Comatose woman hospitalized after birth with baby

Police seek staff DNA over vegetative woman's baby

Family of woman in vegetative state who gave birth is 'traumatized and in shock'

During a press conference on Wednesday, Sgt. Tommy Thompson disclosed how authorities discovered that a 29-year-old Native American woman gave birth to a child at Hacienda HealthCare.

Earlier this week, the chief executive of the corporation in charge of the home resigned over the case. Police said they have ramped up the search for a suspect in a case that has made national headlines.

Hacienda HealthCare said it welcomed the DNA testing.

Anyone can contact the Phoenix Police Department Violent Crimes Bureau at 602-262-6141 or to remain anonymous, Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO for Spanish.

Hacienda HealthCare, who run the facility where the woman was attacked backed the development, saying: 'As a company, we welcome this development in the ongoing police investigation'. Thompson said off-duty officers have been providing extra security "to protect anybody who's there".

The development comes a day after the company's CEO Bill Timmons resigned following reports a patient in one of Hacienda's facilities in a 14-year-long state of vegetation gave birth December 29. "So if anyone can understand that, this was a helpless victim who was sexually assaulted".

Since that day, the woman and the baby boy have been recovering at a hospital. The woman has not been publicly identified by police. Investigators are collected DNA from the facility's male employees and anyone else who may have had contact with her. "We also don't have required training for providers", McFadden said. "So, her weight may not change because she's not taking in additional calories".

Phoenix police are pursuing DNA samples from every male employee at a private care facility where a patient in a vegetative state recently gave birth.

Chairman Terry Rambler said, "On behalf of the Tribe, I am deeply shocked and horrified at the treatment of one of our members".

"When you have a loved one committed to palliative care, when they are most vulnerable and dependent upon others, you trust their caretakers", he said Tuesday.

The centre said a warrant was served by police on Tuesday, as authorities try to find out how the woman became pregnant.

"The family would like me to convey that the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for", he said.

"The family obviously is outraged, traumatised and in shock by the abuse and neglect of their daughter at Hacienda Healthcare", attorney John Michaels said. The facility has 74 certified beds.

Records posted to the Medicare website indicate that the facility received a "below average" rating from health inspectors in 2017. In 1996, a woman in a 10-year coma after a auto crash gave birth to a boy.

The birth and what can only be called rape is now the subject of a police investigation and has resulted in the resignation of the facility's CEO, Bill Timmons. Kathy died before the boy's first birthday.

That same year, a woman in a coma at a home in MA gave birth to a baby girl prematurely and with severe brain damage.
