    What happened to Walter Hommel after Letchworth Village closed?

    J Hussey Newbie

      My cousin, Walter Hommel, was sent to Letchworth Village in Rockland County, NY around the age of 13 or so sometimes between 1938-1940. I have no idea why he was sent there and have no idea what became of him. I do know that he is NOT in their cemetery of numbered (not named) graves. Due to HIPAA rules no one will talk to me. If he went to a group home, how would I find out anything? Perhaps he was released at some point? The trail just seems to end. If he were still alive he would be 95 - possible, but not likely.
