Ill. human services unit helps responders with stress
By M.K. Guetersloh
BEASON, Ill. — Responding to a horrific crime scene can take its toll on police officers, investigators and other first responders, which is why the state police has a human services unit, said one state police official.
Five members of one family were found slain Monday evening in Beason, a rural community outside of Lincoln. A 3-year-old girl, believed to be the sole survivor, remains hospitalized in Peoria.
