    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Family members say Yates had been living at the center for almost 11 years and was ordered to be under 24-hour supervision. They say the staff didn't notice he was missing for hours.

    "It hurts so bad because it could've been prevented," Ashley Yates, Sean's sister, said. "That's the biggest thing. I mean we can't pick and choose when we're going to go, but this particular incident I know could have been prevented."

    The staff officially called him missing at 4:45 and the last time he was seen was 3:30. That's not "hours".

    When you have the state pay for care for your brother, and he does well for 11 years and then finally wanders off, I'm not sure this can be counted as anything except an accidental death.

    Sad, but no one in the family had seen him since Christmas. I wonder if they had all housed him in their own private homes, could they have done better at keeping him from wandering off under their watch?

    Have been researching this case; think it might not have been as accidental as it first seems.

    Interview with family:
    Death Of Sean Yates Raises Questions Of Neglect At Texas State-Supported Living Centers
    Sean’s cause of death is listed as accidental drowning by the Nueces County Medical Examiner. But Ashley thinks something far more sinister happened to him.

    “My honest opinion: Someone did this to him. His nose was broke. He had a laceration above his nose and both his cheek bones were broke,” Yates said.

    DAVIES: "So you think someone beat him up?"

    YATES: "I do. But no one is ever going to walk up and say, 'Hey I did it.' "
    What I've read about Sean is that he was fairly intelligent--not the sort of non-verbal and/or severely disabled autistic person you would normally see in a wandering-and-drowning incident. And the assisted living center seems pretty shady, too--they've been in trouble for running "fight clubs" among the developmentally disabled adults, for neglect in general, and may be shut down.

    I don't know what happened to Sean, but I am really starting to doubt that it was wandering-and-drowning. He certainly did escape the center on his own because he had done so many times before, but he had always been found safe before, even after having been missing for days. And he was found with injuries that looked like someone had beaten his face in, possibly having drowned because he was too hurt to swim.

    I see cases like this occasionally--where it looks like a wandering death, but there are factors that don't fit, signs of foul play, like someone took advantage of a wandering autistic person. Autistics are about ten times as likely to become crime victims, and if this was, say, a mugging that went wrong, someone beating him up because he didn't have the money they wanted, then it was murder. But I think his sister's right--they'll probably never find the perpetrator.

    New information for the Autism Memorial is always appreciated.
