In memos to the three, top CPS officials tell the three that they're on "emergency leave" pending the results of an Abilene police investigation of Tamryn Klapheke's death.
Police are investigating three CPS supervisors for possibly withholding or tampering with evidence in connection with its investigation into Tamryn Klapheke's death. Documents were seized when police carried out a search warrant Tuesday, but no charges have been filed.
Earlier this week, Crime Time linked to other stories about how the baby's mother, Tiffany Nicole Klapheke (shown here), faces three felony charges of injury to child in her Aug. 28 death. After her arrest, she claimed she was too stressed by her husband's deployment to care for their three young children.
In a related matter, the Air Force has charged an airman at an Abilene air base with adultery, child endangerment and failure to report child abuse in relation to Tiffany Klapheke. The man, Christopher Perez, is not the woman's husband.
