Be Mindful: ABC-7 probing access to medical care for El Paso veterans in ‘Be Mindful’ segment

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- -- ABC-7 is looking into the ease and access to medical care for the region's military veterans. It's a journey we started several weeks ago since learning of the death of Rob Renz.

Mr. Renz was a military veteran who died on January 10 after visiting the El Paso VA Medical Center. ABC-7 was told Renz was experiencing a mental health crisis and did not get the help he needed. He died by suicide.

Renz's death sparked an outcry from many in the community, who wanted to know how something like this could have happened and how to make sure it won't happen again. ABC-7 is committed to getting those answers, and will be speaking to influential members of the community and elected officials on our ongoing series, "Be Mindful."
