In this April 24, 2017, photo, Walter Wenger talks to a reporter at his home in Canastota, N.Y., about his severely disabled son, Steven, who was twice infested with maggots near his breathing tube while living in a state group home. The Associated Press obtained a confidential report on the state investigation that determined the 2016 infestations at the group home in Rome, N.Y., were the result of neglect by caregivers. In most states, details of abuse and neglect investigations in state-regulated institutions for the disabled are almost never made public.
