Providenciales, 14 Oct 2015 – Social Services is busy looking for a new family for the three year old boy who was taken into their care following the arrest of his parents.

The husband and wife were arrested on Friday in connection to the death of their five year old son, Joas St Louis on September 30. Reports are the boy was living with an uncle for the past few days, but that is not a long term solution.

Magnetic Media is also told there are two North Caicos families which have expressed an interest in taking in the younger son.

Time is of the essence as background checks are conducted on the potential adoptive families; Social Services will have to send the child back to Haiti if no suitable home can be found for him here in TCI.

Social Services may also be considering strengthening policies when it comes to school officials and how they deal with suspected cases of child abuse.
