Description

In this 16 month series, WTHR looks at the working of the child welfare system in Indiana. The reports showed how the sate was not protecting children it had placed in foster homes. In some cases children died due to being ill-treated or neglect in the foster homes. After this series was aired, the state government passed a law making prior death records of children in foster care public.
