  "DJ Reading The Police Blotter" DJ got her home health aid certificate in lieu of her high school diploma. She had five children in between a handful of jobs. Two of the kids' fathers were serving time when DJ gave birth. DJ worked in the housekeeping department of a local hotel, but her new boyfriend told her to quit and that he would work and let D J stay home with her children. He didn't last long on the job and soon DJ was evicted and living in a shelter with her children.
