LAS VEGAS - Police say Daevon Branon-Banks died last week in the care of his foster parents. He was 1-years-old.

Craig Dickens initially told police that Daevon fell from his crib. But, that wasn't true. Officers say Dickens later admitted to throwing Daevon to the floor multiple times when he was drunk. "He had a special light about him. He was an angel," said Ramona Branon, Daevon's grandmother. "I really think he was an angel sent from God."

In June, the Humboldt County Civil Grand Jury released two reports related to the outcomes of at-risk youth in our county child welfare system. The reports, "Child Welfare In Humboldt: Getting the Door Open" and "Responding in Time to Help Our 'At Risk' Children,'" allege that the three agencies most responsible for protecting local children, the Humboldt County Office of Education, the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office and the Department of Health and Human Services, are not working efficiently together.
