I continue to wait for Secretary Wilkins to answer my June 6, 2013 question that I sent him by US Mail----“Would you want your child(ren) living in this apartment complex with 31 indigent mentally ill adults?” Referring to the two licensed residential care homes for children in Key West. I reminded Secretary Wilkens of the Florida execution of Elmer Carroll for the rape and strangling death of 10-year-old Christine McGowan. The May report stated that McGowan “lived with her family next door to a halfway house for homeless men where Carroll was staying.” How can the DCF continue to declare this environment “safe?” A possible 14 foster kids ages newborn to 17 next to 31 indigent mentally ill adults? Unbelievable!
