We continue our investigation into the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). While looking into what happened the night Joseph Chacón died, reporter Deepa Fernandes found something shocking buried in the autopsy records: another baby, Draco Ford, had passed away in the same foster home two months earlier.
