CORPUS CHRISTI - Federal agents are searching the Legacy Home Health Care offices in Corpus Christi today.
We've spoken to one Legacy employee and a former employee who both said they have their suspicions about why the FBI is there. As for the details from the company or the feds, those are still pretty scarce.
A representative from the FBI would not comment on the nature of the investigation. We do know the agents are part of the Coastal Bend Healthcare Fraud Task Force.
One employee told us about 20 agents arrived and told employees to hand over their laptops and passwords. He also said agents are searching the computers and some paperwork.
As for the elderly seeking care here at legacy therapy center, we've seen numerous people come and pick up their relatives for the day. One woman told us hospice picked up her mother for the day then called hours later to tell her she needed to pick her up.
