Sanchez’s grandmother, Amy Duarte, says her grandson was mentally disabled following a crash as a baby.

Records show the adult residential facility where Sanchez was receiving care got its license just five months ago and that Gacilan was the CEO. The California Department of Social Services oversees care homes and has now launched an investigation.
