Friends of injured Manchester man want answers
"He wasn't in the hierarchy. But he is well-known and respected. He didn't have any enemies," Phil Provencher said of Ornelas, 54.
Apostoles and several other friends vow to press for answers about who is responsible for inflicting the injuries during the approximately 38 hours he was in the care and custody of local institutions they say are intended to protect — not harm — the public.
"We are all very concerned about him. We are putting on the fundraiser to ease the pain a little bit for when he gets out of the hospital," Apostoles said.
Meanwhile, North said he and others hope the criminal investigation launched Friday by the state Attorney General and Hillsborough County Attorney will result in "justice for Fern."
Ornelas, who suffers from a mental illness, was brought to Elliot Hospital emergency department the night of Oct. 15 by his sister because he went off his medications. Ornelas was being held in the secure psychiatric evaluation unit while waiting for a bed to open at New Hampshire Hospital, the state's acute psychiatric facility.
