Two state workers involved in A.J. Freund case no longer work for DCFS


(AP) — State officials say that two Department of Children and Family Services employees at the center of an investigation into the well-being of a five-year-old boy who later died are no longer employed.

The Chicago Tribune reports that a DCFS spokesman declined to say whether Carlos Acosta and his former supervisor, Andrew Polovin, were fired or resigned.

The two responded to a December 2018 police complaint about bruising on Andrew “A.J.” Freund of Crystal Lake. The boy was found dead in a shallow grave last spring. His mother has pleaded guilty to his murder.
