    There have been 12 verified deaths due to abuse or neglect in 2013, according to the Florida Department of Children and Families, which announced that it will do a thorough review of them. DCF records frequently mention that the family of 2-year-old Jayden Villegas Morales received services from Project SOS, a Homestead Police Department initiative. Project SOS Executive Director Sandra Nanni said she could not comment on whether DCF informed them that Jayden and his siblings were being removed from their mother and placed with their father in June. Jayden died a month later.
