CPS head administrator in Wichita Falls returns to work five months into police investigation

WICHITA FALLS, Texas - After a five month investigation, the head administrator at Child Protective Services in Wichita Falls returned to work Tuesday.  

Geneva Schroeder, as well as three local directors, was put on paid leave back in October after an investigation into the death of toddler Tamryn Klapheke at Dyess Air Force Base. Abilene police detectives started investigating CPS after they suspected the agency falsified or faked documents in the Klapheke case.

Patrick Crimmins, a CPS representative in Austin, confirmed Schroeder was back at work at her former post as of Tuesday. Crimmins said he could not comment on reasoning for the decision to reinstate Schroeder.
