Anyone who peered inside the mixed paper bin at the Dupont Recycling Center in May of 2009 got an eyeful. Files, in plain sight, which contained sensitive medical and identity information. Authorities don't know how those thousands of files got there. Some of the records came from Hutcheson and a plastic surgery office in the area. The information inside those files included graphic photos, and Social Security numbers.
