Valdosta -- Four foster children have been removed from the home of a Valdosta woman who left a baby to die inside a hot van last week.

Fifty-eight-year-old Barbara Dye, who lives at Brookwood Place, had five foster children, ranging in age from one month to 16 years. Last Thursday, one month old Dejuan Ramsey was left inside Dye's sweltering van for eight hours while she was at work at DuPont Crop Protection in Valdosta.

She told investigators she thought she had dropped off the infant at daycare. Now the Department of Family and Children's Services has taken the other four foster children, ages 3, 9, 15, & 16, from Dye. They've been placed in another foster home.  Investigators have yet to decide if the children will return to her care. 

"DFACS is involved in an investigation, as well as law enforcement, so decisions will be made once the investigations are completed, once law enforcement has finished their work and DFACS as well," said DFACS spokesman Ari Young.   

So far, no criminal charges are filed against Dye.
