I am writing in response to the article that appeared on Nov. 10 about the 2018 death of a 2-year-old boy (“Trial begins in 2018 toddler death”).
I was saddened as I read the story, but my sadness turned to anger when I read that, less than six months prior to the child’s death, there had been a police investigation after the victim’s leg had been broken. Further, the alleged murderer was on probation for an aggravated assault conviction.
Why was this child not removed from that home? I know the answer because I have experience as a foster parent, but more people in our state need to be asking why children are continuing to live in these dangerous situations.
