The New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department confirmed Friday that the agency launched an investigation late in the week surrounding an alleged childcare business which may be operating illegally out of a home at 525 Navajo.
This is the same residence where Katrina Vigil, 25, allegedly gave birth Sept. 24 to a baby boy, Grey Vigil, and then reportedly did not seek medical attention for herself or the newborn. Grey died 10 days later in hospice care in Rio Rancho.
In reference to the CYFD investigation, Grey Vigil’s grandmother, Holly Vigil, told the Los Alamos Monitor Sept. 29 that she was operating a childcare service in the home. She then declined further comment. Both state and county records show no license or business permit issued to that address or to the Vigils.
CYFD spokesperson Romaine Serna said that the daycare licensing unit was scheduled to visit the home last Friday.
“The option available to us should we determine that an unlicensed daycare is being operated in the home is to issue a cease and desist order,” Serna said. “We should know more next week as a result of the investigation.”
