PUEBLO, Colo. (CBS4) – Disturbing allegations of abuse have been uncovered at the Pueblo Regional Center for people with severe intellectual disabilities.

A federal report indicates that several residents had words scratched into their skin. Staffers claim the words appeared by “paranormal activity.”
