The Mobile Register investigates the death of John Daniel "Little Man" Powell Jr., a toddler beaten so savagely that his head swelled up with blood. The Register's investigation into the child's last days unraveled the larger story of a state agency that had failed him, and other abused children, repeatedly and shamefully. (June 3, July 14; August 10, 11, 25, 29; September 7, 8; October 20, 1996)
