Republicans: Investigate The DCF

(Fitchburg, MA) — Republicans on Beacon Hill are calling for an independent investigation into the Department of Children and Families. Friday’s letter to the State Auditor and Inspector General from the Republican Caucus comes as volunteers search for the body of five-year-old Jeremiah Oliver. The Fitchburg boy disappeared in September but child protection authorities only found out last week. The family was supposed to be under DCF oversight.
