Victor Barahona in therapeutic foster care

MIAMI (WFLX) - Florida Department of Children and Families Secretary David Wilkins said Victor Barahona is out of the hospital and staying in a therapeutic foster home in an "undisclosed location" and is "starting to live a normal life again".

He would not comment on what Victor knows about his twin sister, Nubia.

The girl was found dead on February 14 in the back of the chemical truck that the twins' adoptive father, Jorge Barahona, and Victor were parked in on the side of I-95 in West Palm Beach. Victor was covered in chemicals.

Wilkins made his comments Wednesday morning from the DCF's Miami office.

He also talked about the agency's investigative team. They'll meet again on Thursday and twice more next week.

Wilkins said the group has found "more process point breakdowns" within the DCF; however, he would not identify them.

He said the group would make their findings public on March 15, including changes to the DCF's operations and policies.

Wilkins said all of the agency's findings before February 14 will be released; however, any reports after that date that could compromise any on-going investigation would not.

He did state DCF workers are already "communicating faster" with law enforcement.
