What happened 

Police investigators have begun to gather DNA from men who work at an Arizona care facility where a woman in a vegetative state gave birth last month.

Phoenix police Sgt. Tommy Thompson said Wednesday the woman and child, who was in medical distress after being delivered December 29, remain in the hospital.

The woman’s name can’t be revealed because she is the victim of sexual abuse.

In a statement, tribal officials said the woman was still in a vegetative state when she gave birth. It’s also unclear if staff members at the facility were aware of her pregnancy until the birth.

Detectives have asked men at the Hacienda HealthCare facility in Phoenix to give buccal swabs, Thompson said. Investigators got court orders for those who didn’t voluntarily give samples. There is no suspect, Thompson said.

“The family obviously is outraged, traumatized and in shock by the abuse and neglect of their daughter at Hacienda HealthCare,” the family’s attorney, John Micheaels said. “The family would like me to convey that the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for.”

Thompson said the sexual assault investigation will take some time.

“We’re not going to point out who we’ve obtained DNA from or who we intend to get DNA from,” he said. “But suffice it to say, it is a large number of individuals. We have a very wide scope at this point.”
