    A Department of Children and Families child protective investigator has been fired for falsifying documents in a case related to the boy who died a week ago in his mother’s hot car, the agency's leader said. At a Thursday press conference, DCF Secretary David Wilkins described how employee Shani Smith falsified records after mother Catalina Bruno, 30, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence in November. Smith denies she falsified records, but all available evidence points to the contrary, Wilkins said.
