Editor: The case of Darwin Martinez Torres is a concern for all residents of Loudoun County. The death of Nabra Hassanen is a tragedy, a tragedy that could and should have been avoided.
It is widely known that Torres was brought to the attention of Loudoun County Child Protective Services and the Sheriff’s Office before the incident with Hassanen occurred; neither took any action.
The county has been extremely silent about their involvement with Torres. CPS has provided very vague responses to FOIA requests. In addition, the county attorney does not feel it appropriate to request an audit of the local CPS agency. The county’s silence and response to this tragedy does not inspire confidence and cast strong doubts about the leadership in Loudoun.
