DCFS previously investigated parents of 4-month-old who died in DeWitt County

A spokesperson with DCFS said they are investigating the death of 4-month-old Emily Killian out of Clinton, IL., which is in DeWitt County.

DCFS said Killian was pronounced dead Sunday, June 9th.

Killian’s death has lead DCFS investigators to open a new case on her parents. This would be the 4th case opened on the baby’s parents. DCFS said the three previous cases pertained to investigations with Killian’s siblings, not Killian.

Here’s a list of the investigation history:

  • 2014 – claims against parents deemed unfounded
  • 2017 – DCFS finds evidence of neglect
  • 2018 – claims against parents deemed unfounded

DCFS said the current investigation is pending.

We reached out to Clinton Police for more information, but have not heard back yet.
