Disabled Man Awarded $8 Million After City Failed Him, Was Living With Over 500 Rats!

A developmentally disabled man, Vernon Gray, was awarded $8 million!

It was found that he was living in HORRIFIC conditions under the eyes of the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services.

After his caregivers, which were his parents, died nearly 20 years ago, it seems like the city forgot about him. Agents from the department said they attempted to visit Gray, but was “unsure” if he needed help, while another one claimed the home was unsafe.

Over 500 rats were infested in Gray’s apartment. One neighbor said they would see rats swinging from the drapes.

By 2017, Gray was legally blind and covered in lice.
