The theology degree is interesting. Or strange, perhaps, considering... maybe he should have stayed with religion. Or does that involve things like actual religious concepts? Morality, ethics, right-and-wrong. Idunno. Didn't study theology. Just wondering.

The gig at Ascent IS interesting. Briefly, Ascent Children's Health Services operated about ten or so facilities Arkansas, mostly in the northeast part of the state. According to their marketing blurb they "developmental intervention day treatment services and mental health services to infants, children, adolescents, adults and families in Arkansas". Harvesting the Medicaid bounty? Sorry, I'm a bit cynical these days. I don't know how long they were around - I remember seeing their offices and vehicles in Jonesboro (the headquarters) for years before they closed. The good Mr. Cox worked there for nine years or thereabouts. Sweet gig from the looks of it. But all good things must end, or bad ones for that matter. He would probably still be there, but around 2017 the end came. This is important. Children were transported to and from the facilities in passenger vans. One child, five years old, was not removed from the van and taken into the classroom. He was left strapped in the seat. Eight hours later, with the temperature outside 90 degrees or above, causing the temperature inside the van to go as high as 140, the presence in of the now-deceased child was noticed. Not this happened in 2017, and for years such incidents had been happening and being widely reported. Naturally several employees were charged with manslaughter, I may check to see how that turned out. Or not. It is not germane to this case. That is the operation the no doubt esteemed Mr. Cox was running. OK, enough of that.

The business closed shortly afterward, and he had the two-year gig in Batesville. Hey, mental health is a profitable business. But then the position at ACCH became available. Now he can abuse and kill adults. And profit from insurance and Medicare fraud instead of Medicaid, for the most part. Probably some victims are on Medicaid. So that brings us up to date on seƱor Cox. For now anyway.
