A review of Suffolk County Child Protective Services is underway after some questioned why the agency had not done more to protect an 8-year-old Center Moriches boy allegedly killed by his father.

An internal review committee is reviewing the case of Thomas Valva, who police said froze to death Jan. 17 after his father, New York City police officer Michael Valva, and his fiancée, Angela Pollina, allegedly left the boy in an unheated garage overnight. The boy’s mother had raised concerns that he was being abused.
