NYC child welfare department to review handling of suspected killing mom Dimone Fleming’s neglect case

Mayor Eric Adams announced on Tuesday that the city’s child welfare agency would be conducting a “deep dive” into its handling of a previously suspected neglect case involving Dimone Fleming and her oldest son, whom she is accused of killing over the weekend along with her infant.

Hizzoner said that the Administration for Children’s Services was conducting an in-depth investigation into allegations that Fleming failed to provide sufficient care for her eldest son, Daishawn Fleming, when he was born around three years ago.

Adams refused to give any information about the previous probe. To paraphrase, “We’re not authorized to do that,” he declared.

According to police and police sources, 22-year-old Fleming acknowledged the murders of Daishawn and her 11-month-old son Octavius Fleming on Saturday in their Bronx shelter apartment.

Police sources say she was preoccupied with the idea of demonic possession, and they are looking into whether or not she felt the children were possessed.

On Tuesday, the mayor lauded ACS, the city department responsible for the child, safety welfare, and juvenile justice matters.

“I think they are experts who are, you know, dealing with the problems of, you know, keeping families together but protecting children,” he said.
