One foster child was found dead and another in “dire” condition last week when a Boston foster mother called 911 to report that the children were unresponsive. Also in the foster mother’s care was an additional foster child as well as three of her own children, all of whom have been removed and placed in state care pending an investigation.

The toxicology report has not yet been completed on the child that died. No charges have been filed, but these two horrendous situations, along with others reported in the area this year, are causing DCS to perform internal investigations to prevent further harm to children in the system.
