The parents of 5-year-old AJ Freund report him missing. When confronted with forensic analysis their cellphones and other information, they both reportedly provide details that lead to the little boy’s location. His body is later found wrapped in plastic in a shallow grave.
AJ’s parents are charged with murder, but what about the Illinois Department of Child and Family Service workers who repeatedly returned the child to his parent, finding no cause for concern? Now two DCFS workers have now been charged in Freund’s death.
