(Chicago, IL) — The head of Illinois‘s DCFS promises that change is coming following the death of Semaj Crosby earlier this year in suburban Joliet Township. Speaking to a House-Senate committee yesterday in Chicago, agency head Beverly Walker said they have already taken steps to better analyze new cases.
The 17-month-old girl was found dead in her house in April, a day after the DCFS found no obvious safety concerns in the home. Walker said the changes were in response to shortcomings outlined in a report released in May that detailed the agency’s handling of the Crosby case.
