CPS: Outrage at rising death toll

CPS: Outrage at rising death toll

While the death of one Sacramento child last week unleashed an internal review of the county's Child Protective Services, the streak of dead children known to the agency actually began in September, a Bee review of public documents shows.

Since then, seven children have died on CPS' watch, including one just before Christmas. And at least two more kids known to CPS nearly died last year – one of them a 4-month-old girl, who was referred to the agency 12 times before being hospitalized for suspected shaken baby syndrome.
