Document the DCF Atrocities

The Florida Department of Children & Families investigated Nicole Heath 11 times before her youngest, baby De' Adrian Wilson, died in an accidental apartment fire in Delray Beach on May 4, newly released documents show.

The first case began in 1999 after the accidental death of her 2-month-old son.

Now, as the DCF investigates De'Adrian's death, the agency is left to answer how this mother of 10 children could be flagged so many times and still be left to care for her youngest children.

Again and again, Heath had children and reports questioning her ability to care for them prompted investigations. But, except for a case where the father of one girl was found driving with marijuana with the child in the car, investigators found "no indicators for threat of harm," the [agency's] papers said.
