    Florida's DCF system fails

    My nephew, Matthew, passed away Friday February 15th. He drowned in the bathtub. He was 11 months old. Dept of children and families and Lake county sheriffs dept failed to do their job. Multiple reports of suspected abuse and drug use in the home were made to both departments, yet, my nephew was left in a tub of water for 45 mins while his parents were getting high on meth. His sister found him. DCF and Lake county should answer for their lack of involvement. Please help us bring justice for Matthew.
