Things that go on like this shouldn’t be ignored.
Cedarcrest Sanctum bills itself as “a modern rest home nestled in the mountains of central West Virginia.”
The residents who are accepted have no family, no money, and nowhere else to go. In spite of these facts, the administrator of the facility still takes them in. If accepted into “the program,” they are removed from the public eye and are no longer permitted outside visitors.
To date, no one in “the program” has ever left Cedarcrest Sanctum and no deaths have been reported – not a single one in over ten years. No one seems to know what happens to the elderly who reside there and no one seems to care.
My attempts to contact anyone on the inside of their gated, secure facility have all failed. Their website, CedarcrestSanctum.com, claims that the phones are unlisted (for privacy reasons) and that emails go unanswered because they “cannot reply to every correspondent.”
There was a recent story concerning a college student named Janiss Connelly who used to volunteer there before “suddenly” being offered a job. Immediately thereafter, she withdrew from college only a semester before her graduation and became unreachable by phone or email. Like the residents, no one has reported seeing or talking to her since.
If you know anything about what is going on at this facility, DO NOT keep it to yourself.
Someone has to stop this.
