Ohio children die despite state oversight

An investigation by Randy Ludlow of The Columbus Dispatch uncovered that more than one-third of the Ohio children who died from abuse and neglect from 2002 to 2007 died on the watch of county children services agencies. The story revealed that caseworkers regularly made fatal mistakes by leaving imperiled children in abusive homes. The package documented some horrifying examples of children who died despite the involvement of children services officials. The story included a statewide survey of all 88 county children services agencies to uncover abuse deaths in which they were involved.
