Senator McCoy Alleges DHS Dismissed Potential Child Abuse Case Without an Investigation
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Senator Matt McCoy says the Department of Human Services dismissed a possible case of child abuse without an investigation. The alleged abuse took place earlier this year at a home in Des Moines. The infant's parents had a security camera rolling to keep an eye on the babysitter, and the video shows the woman dropping the infant into its crib and then dragging the boy by his foot to get him to lay down. Later, she is seen flipping the child around by his arm, knocking his head against the crib railing.
