There has been a major development on the investigation conducted by The G-Man Interviews on home health care agencies and aides in New York State.

The sister site of From The G-Man was informed that Francis Morrisey, who investigates elder abuse and Medicaid fraud through New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office, watched the episode below and immediately requested a meeting with the whistleblower, Monica Arroyo-Horne, to discuss the matter in greater detail.

Morrisey's office has requested all documents and video footage on Arroyo-Horne's case, which date back to 2004. 

"I want to thank 'The G-Man Inteviews', once again, for allowing me to share my story. Its been a difficult few years having to deal with home health care agencies and the women they hire," said Arroyo-Horne. "I will continue to fight not only for my mother, but also for the many elderly out here who rely on HHAs and HHCs. Thank you, on behalf of me and my mother, for bringing this to the forefront."

Arroyo-Horne, a resident of Brooklyn, was raised in a single family home in Jamaica, New York, with her mother Naomi Davis. She spent most of her teenage years there and attended Bayside High School. 

Her passion for the legal field led to a position with the New York City Law Department. After three months, she was promoted to Executive Level II Secretary and worked directly with the Corporation Counsel, Michael D. Hess. 

She is currently employed with the City of New York and attends John Jay College of Criminal Justice, as well as the College of New Rochelle, in pursuit of her Master’s Degree in Communications. 

During her tenure as a city employee, she held discussions with a number of New York City officials, including former Mayor David Dinkins, Congressman Charles Rangel, former City Council member Charles Barron, Eric Adams, who currently serves as Brooklyn Borough President, and retired First Deputy Police Commissioner Howard Safir. 

She also devotes much of her time to the daily care of her mother, who suffers from Alzheimer’s and dementia.
