Washington D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) spoke with the Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie and Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center Director Dr. Glenn Snider today to discuss the ongoing investigation into the 11 suspicious deaths being investigated at the Clarksburg VA, one of which was confirmed to be homicide.
Last week the Clarksburg Exponent Telegram reported that at least one of the up to 11 suspicious deaths being investigated at the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center has been ruled a homicide. The other nine or ten are also suspected to be homicides.
“Today I made sure to talk to Secretary Wilkie and Dr. Snider to make sure that their investigation into these deaths is accurate and thorough. I was also assured by both Secretary Wilkie and Dr. Snider that the person of interest is no longer in any contact with Veterans at the VA facility.
These crimes shock the conscience and I’m still appalled they were not only committed but that our Veterans, who have sacrificed so much for our country, were the victims. As a member of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee I will do everything in my power to investigate these accusations and get to the bottom of what happened. These families and loved ones deserve answers as soon as possible and I will make sure they get them,” Senator Manchin said.
