Family services are investigating a Chicago family after their five-month-old twins were found unresponsive in their crib.

Mother Victoria Rodriguez, 19, told reporters that she found the twins,
Giselle and Julian, in the same crib, apparently not breathing. They
were unresponsive even after she splashed cold water on their faces, she
said.

The young mother said she put a blanket over them earlier this morning and said they may have accidentally suffocated.

found unresponsive in their crib Thursday morning - DCFS is launching an
investigation into their deaths



Emotional: Father Josue Romero, 26, said he came home to find his 19-year-old wife crying on the floor

She said each child had their own crib, but were found together.

The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services is looking into the
deaths of Giselle and Julian, and had previous allegations of neglect
against both Victoria, and her husband, Josue Romero, 26.

The family lives in Chicago’s Little Village neighbourhood, one of the city’s most prominent areas for Mexican immigrants.


DCFS spokesperson Jimmie Whitelow said that the agency had contact with the
family in March of 2011 after they received reports of neglect and abuse
against Romero and an uncle.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, DCFS had a pending investigation for a neglect complaint from April 9.

Romero told the Sun-Times that he thought it was an accident. He recounted: ‘I saw her crying on the floor in shock.'


Modern family: The couple lived on this block of Little Village in Chicago, a predominately Mexican neighbourhood



Guilt: Romero said his wife takes the blame for their children's deaths; she believes they suffocated in their sleep

He said she kept crying 'the babies!', adding that she told him their
children were in bed, but that he didn’t ‘want to see.’ He added: ‘I’m
shocked and sad.’

The father said that the twins were having trouble sleeping Wednesday
night, and his wife went in to calm them. He was up early Thursday –
around 8:30, he said – to take their older children to daycare.

The young couple have four other children between the ages of one and five,
two from Romero and two from Rodriguez. Autopsies for the two children
are scheduled for Friday.

Rodriguez, who told the Tribune that she is unemployed, also voiced fears over how
she and her husband will cover costs of their funerals.

The twins were born November 17, 2011, and were premature. However, Romero
said they were ‘getting chubby’ and enjoyed talking to each other.

Experts said that both children dying of SIDS – sudden infant death syndrome – is highly unlikely, but not impossible.

The risk for SIDS increases if babies sleep on their stomachs, with an adult, or are born severely prematurely.

It said four OTHER children. I'm wondering if there are 6 of them?

4 or 6, it is disgusting. They need to be neutered and spayed.

Autopsies on 5-month-old twins inconclusive

By Rosemary R. Sobol and Naomi Nix

Tribune reporters

5:56 p.m. CDT, May 11, 2012

Autopsies on 5-month-old twins found dead in their Little Village
home were inconclusive, and the cause of their deaths are "pending
further studies," the Cook County medical examiner's office says.

Four other children living in the home have been placed in "protective
custody" while authorities investigate the deaths, according to Kendall
Marlowe, a spokesman for the state Department of Children and Family
Services.

The babies, Julian and
Giselle Romero, were found unresponsive in their crib Thursday morning
in the family's home in the 4100 block of West 25th Street, police said.

Their mother, Victoria Rodriguez, 19, said she woke up early
and put a blanket on them. When she went to check on the babies at 8:30
a.m., Rodriguez said the blanket was covering their heads and they
weren’t moving. "I moved the blanket. They didn’t move at all,” she
said. “I think that that they suffocated.”

She said the babies had been born premature but were healthy. They would have been 6 months on May 17.

DCFS said it has had contact with the family since March of 2011, when the
agency determined that an allegation of abuse involving an older child
was credible.

Rodriguez said the allegation involved a relative who “tried to choke’’ the child, a girl, who was 7 months old at the time.

Then on April 9 of this year, the agency began an investigation into an allegation of neglect involving the twins.

Rodriguez said she had missed an appointment at a medical clinic because their
father had gotten his driver’s license suspended. Rodriguez said the
twins were born premature and suffered from “development issues.’’

Out of concern for their privacy, Marlowe declined to clarify the ages of
four children they took custody of and said they were taken away because
they were either at risk of being harmed or had been.
.
“Any time we are taking protective custody of a child it is because children have
either been harmed or at risk of being harmed,’’ Marlowe said.
What happens to the children now is up to a judge.

A representative from the Cook County state’s attorney’s office will be
assigned and the case must be brought before a judge within 48 hours,
according to Marlowe.

If the judge agrees they are at risk, the
judge will give “temporary custody’’ to DCFS. “Once a judge does that,
there is a case opened,’’ Marlowe said.

Several outcomes are possible, but they always try to get the children either back home or with other family members first.

“Whether a child is in temporary custody for a day or for 10 years varies
wildly,’’ he said. “You’re seeking some sense of permanency.’’
