Understanding DCFS Cases and Claims

Karen Conti

Rep. Sara Feigenholtz, left, asks questions to the director of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services Marc D. Smith as Smith testifies before the House Appropriations-Human Services Committee Friday, April 26, 2019 in Chicago. Legislators are asking him about DCFS action in the case of Andrew “AJ” Freund. The 5-year-old boy’s body was found in a shallow grave Wednesday in McHenry County. His parents have been charged with murder. DCFS had a long history of interaction with the Crystal Lake family. The agency has been criticized for not doing more to prevent the deaths of two other children under DCFS watch since February. At right is Rep. Anna Moeller. (AP Photo/Kiichiro Sato)
