The investigative series by The Miami Herald found more than 475 cases in a span of six years where a child died after Department of Children and Families had been in contact with the family. "In many of these cases, he or she fell short and felt that they had to compete for attention or affection of the child. The children are seen as being in the way," said Interim DCF Secretary Esther Jacobo.
Nicole Kemp is accused of taking the child and raising her for three years. "She took the little girl. How she took her was wrong, but she got her and they have an attachment," said the girl's aunt, Anita Gibson.
