Jenifer B. McKim of The Orange County Register writes about lost
opportunities to save a 10-month-old foster child who was returned to his
mother and brutally murdered. "The investigation found that nearly two dozen abused or neglected children who had been under protection of the Juvenile Court in Orange County have died over the past six years. Most died of illnesses or accidents, but some could have been saved. " The Orange County Register litigated for more
than a year in Juvenile Court to get details of 23 children under court
protection who died.
