Matthew Goodman - 2002

14-year-old Matthew Goodman suffered from autism. It should be an illness he should be able to live with for many years. Instead due to the methods used at Bancroft NeuroHealth's "The Lindens" which was a residential treatment facility, he died when he was restrained by the employees in a way which hurt him.

The death was followed by other troubles with the treatment facility and in the end the facility promised to look at their methods.

For Matthew Goodman it was too late. May he find peace where he is now.
