DHS looks into cases of 2 Larimer infants who died
Grand County CO Colorado
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) – Internal investigations are under way into how Larimer County social services handled the cases of two infants who died while under monitoring by the state.
Chad Munoz of Fort Collins died in January 2008 and Summer Moon Hawk of Loveland died in January 2010. They were being monitored by the Department of Human Services because they were born with marijuana or alcohol in their systems.
An autopsy said Chad died of blunt-force trauma to his head. His father, 26-year-old Juan Munoz, is serving a nine-year prison term after pleading guilty to reckless manslaughter.
The coroner rules Summer died of pneumonia. Police say she and her mother, 20-year-old Kaylynn Davis, lived in a cold garage. Davis has been arrested on suspicion of child abuse.
