BOSTON, Mass. - The Department of Children and Families closed Bella Bond's case before it should have, according to a report released Wednesday.
According to the Boston Globe, two years before the toddler was found dead on Deer Island, the DCF was to investigate abuse allegation against the infant - but failed to properly investigate.
The report, ordered by Gov. Charlie Baker, found there was conflicting reviews on whether or not Rachelle Bond was a good parent and the DCF should have investigated further.
Rachelle Bond and her boyfriend, Michael McCarthy, are facing charges in relation to Baby Bella's death.
