Summary The Herald explored how 477 children died of abuse or neglect over a six-year period after falling through Florida’s child welfare safety net, largely as a result of a misguided effort to reduce the number of foster children while simultaneously slashing services for troubled families. We have since continued the reporting into a seventh year and the number of dead is our searchable database is now 533..
