AMERICAN FORK, Utah — Following the tragic hot car death of a 12-year-old boy with disabilities, the Department of Human Services has placed the business caring for Josh Hancey when he died on “conditional status.”
That means the company, Roost Services, will not be allowed to accept new clients, as the Department investigates their health practices.
“We determine if there was any health or safety violations that may have contributed to the tragic event,”Heather Barnum with the Utah Department of Human Services said. “Then we have things we can do, like go as far as suspending or revoking a license.”
Officials say police are conducting their own investigation at the same time to determine if there were any legal violations.
