Thompson says police were called December 29 about a newborn in distress at a Hacienda HealthCare facility.

The lawyer for the family of a 29-year-old Native American woman who has been in "a completely vulnerable state" after almost drowning over a decade ago said Tuesday that "the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for", Arizona Family reported.

The case has drawn outcry from the governor to the San Carlos Apache tribe in southeastern Arizona, of which the 29-year-old victim is an enrolled member, and put the spotlight on the safety of group homes and facilities that care for those who are incapacitated or severely disabled.

I know Chief Jeri Williams and the Phoenix PD Officers will do all they can to find the perpetrator.

Several sources close to the case told KPHO that there is much more to be uncovered about the abuse allegations at this facility. She is in a vegetative state, not a coma.

Hacienda HealthCare's longtime CEO, Bill Timmons, resigned on Monday in the wake of the crime.

"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.

Police served a search warrant to obtain DNA from male staff at the Hacienda long-term care center, the health care organization said in a statement Tuesday, adding that "as a company, we welcome this development in the ongoing police investigation".

"Sadly, one of her caretaker was not to be trusted and took advantage of her.it is my hope that justice will be served".

Hacienda has said it will "do everything in [its] power to bring this police investigation to a quick conclusion".

The incident occurred at a clinic run by Hacienda HealthCare, near Phoenix.

"We will continue to cooperate with Phoenix Police and all other investigative agencies to uncover the facts in this deeply disturbing, but unprecedented situation", the company said.

An attorney representing the woman's family told KPNX in a statement Tuesday that the family was not emotionally prepared to make a statement but that they "would like me to convey that the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for".

According to its website, Hacienda HealthCare serves more than 2,500 people throughout Arizona each year. "Whether it's an employee or someone from the outside, the facility has an obligation to protect residents".

"They have now monitors in the hallways checking everybody's rooms making sure there's somebody that shouldn't be in the room shouldn't be in there, now they're giving out badges", said Angela Gomez, whose son who suffers from muscular dystrophy occupies one of the 58 beds at the facility.

"We're not going to point out who we've obtained DNA from or who we intend to get DNA from", he said. It's unclear if staff members at the facility were aware of her pregnancy until the birth.

According to the Phoenix CBS Affiliate KPHO, an unidentified source said, "From what I've been told, she was moaning ... and they didn't know what was wrong with her. ..." "But I can't believe someone receiving that level of constant care wasn't recognized as being pregnant prior to the time she delivered".
