In 2016, 70 year old Esa Lehmusjurri brutally died during an attempt to flee the illegal group home he resided in. His body was found 24 hours later in the neighbour's yard. This is just one of the many stories on the alarming number of deaths taking place in these group homes. Most occupants housed in illegal group homes are elders, who may suffer from both physical and mental health issues.
