    And if she is pregnant.. I hope they remove the child immediately after it is born. (of course she's pregnant.. why wouldn't she be? She needs a new baby to replace Aveion asap so that she won't loose some of those benefits...)


    Oh God, please tell me you are joking.
    Robert Harrod will be found.

    All my posts are MOO and nothing but MOO!!!!

    Just to clarify, CPS is part of the city department of social services; they removed him from the home, and after the parents had jumped through the hoops and passed a trial period where he was returned to them yet CPS retained legal custody, they then recommended he be returned. While it was a damned stupid thing for her to say, I understand (at least in part) where she was coming from. If by all accounts the parents are doing what they are supposed to do in order to regain custody, and it is (apparently) verified by announced and unannounced visits by the case worker, what is CPS to do? If the law doesn't provide that every child who is removed from their home is never to be returned, their hands were tied; as I understand it, it's geared toward doing what it can to allow families to get back together. I think that's what she means by they 'aren't mind-readers'. But my God... it was incredibly stupid of her to go into CYA mode like this. There's enough blame to go around, INCLUDING the fact that CPS placed him back with those monsters. I've also read nothing about if they'd investigated the condition and treatment of the three other children in the home, especially the 4 year old, who was Aveion's sister.

    Aveion remained in a foster home placement until March 31, 2009. During this time, the Department coordinated services in a plan approved, and periodically reviewed, by the court. These services included obtaining information to assist in an assessment of the family’s needs, which led to the provision of an 18-week domestic violence alternatives program for Mr. Lockett, which he completed, and a parenting education class for both parents, also completed. Aveion received various medical and rehabilitative services during his time in foster care. He had supervised visitation with Mr. and Mrs. Lockett. As a result of the Locketts’ compliance with the service plan, extended visitation in their home was initiated with a clinical in-home therapist in December 2008. The therapist was in the home for 20 to 30 hours per month observing the Locketts’ parenting, reinforcing and teaching good parenting practices, as well as observing Aveion’s adjustment. On March 31, 2009, Aveion was returned to Mr. and Mrs. Lockett’s full-time care while the Department retained legal custody. The in-home therapy continued throughout this trial placement. Additionally, Aveion’s foster care social worker continued to make regular visits to the home, both announced and unannounced, to observe how the child was adjusting, and to ascertain that Aveion continued to be healthy and have his medical and nutritional needs met. This trial return home placement was continued for six months, and on Sept. 19, 2009, upon recommendation by the Department, the court returned legal custody of Aveion to Mrs. Lockett.

    Perhaps the law needs to be changed so that in certain cases, under specific criteria, children who are taken from their homes are removed permanently, and CPS is under no obligation to attempt to rehabilitate the parents and reunite the family.

    I think I am sorting this out a bit more in my mind.

    From the link provided by everyoneneedsavoice above:

    Jane Conlin, director of Social Services in Roanoke, said Friday that the responsibility for what happened to Aveion does not rest with her department.
    "The person who is responsible for this is not the social worker," she said. "I think we need to keep in mind that social workers aren't mind readers. We work with the best knowledge and information we have and within the law. Nobody can, with 100 percent accuracy, predict the behavior of another person."

    Is she for real? I'm serious. CHIP recommended this child NOT be returned to the biological mother. CPS recommended this child NOT be returned to the biological mother. The biological mother was denying access to her childs biological father and paternal grandmother who had to seek visitation rights. There was visitation interference to the bio fathers side. Morgan quit cooperating with CHIP once she regained legal custody. A man was living in the house with a CRIMINAL BACKGROUND FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. He is a drug user.

    Yes, Ms. Conlin, I am requesting an investigation be done on YOU with regards to your license and decisions on why this child should have been placed back with his family! I will be contacting these people first thing Monday morning.

    Oh man I am on a mission!
    Sorry to quote myself, but considering the other agencies released documents supporting their statement, I am very curious as to why Jane Conlin simply released such a short statement and why there is no supporting documentation to support this portion of her statement:
    "We work with the best knowledge and information we have and within the law." If in fact, the Social Workers 'hands were tied' based on how the law is written, we need to see how the law is currently written to support the above statement from Ms. Conlin. Where was the failure? with the department of social services or the way the current laws are written?

    I will hopefully get some good professional direction from the contacts with the NJ state licensing board on how to proceed with our inquiries. I will post and follow up early next week after I have received some answers/direction from them early next week. If I can not reach them via email, I will follow up via phone.

    BTW, either here or in one of the articles or comments on this story, it was said that CPS workers were turned away (after full custody returned to parents). I don't know if that is true, or a rumor; nothing was said about that in the above news release. IF that is true, the CPS is certainly liable for not moving to remove him from the home again.

    I agree, however from the link:
    This trial return home placement was
    continued for six months, and on Sept. 19, 2009, upon recommendation by the Department, the
    court returned legal custody of Aveion to Mrs. Lockett.

    I would really like to know what the determining factors where which led the department to return legal custody of Aveion to his mother. All the judge could do was make a decision based on evidence provided to him. Clearly not ALL agencies involved in working this this child agreed he should be returned to his bio mom, because he was thriving in his foster care environment.

    Did the judge hear from ALL agencies involved, or did the department of social workers disregard the information provided to them from CHIP. I don't know what the heirarchy is here with regards to all the agencies involved. Perhaps, when snoelle sees this she can help explain.

    IIRC, it was a statement from the woman who spoke for CHIP in one of the earlier articles.

    I'm assuming she is referring to all the parents were required to do in order to regain custody of Aveion (classes, supervised visits, in-home therapist evaluations during those visits, announced and unannounced visits from the case worker). If the law is such (as I understand it to be) that they do all they can to 'preserve the family unit', and the parents are cooperative and complete all these steps, then their hands are tied I guess.

    I'll research and see if I can find the applicable laws/regulations. It may take a while, I'm working this afternoon and won't have much time to search this out until Monday.

    CPS is the agency involved; it's part of the department of social services. I'm not sure what you mean by "CHIP".

    Thanks Calliope. I know some of this is the discretion of the courts.... and I do know of someone from another forum, in another state, who had her parental rights terminated based on a DV situation in less than 2 months time. So I know it does and can happen quickly when a child or children are in danger. Someone, somewhere determined Aveion was not in danger, when clearly he was. The system failed somewhere, and where the current system failed needs to be uncovered so it can not continue to happen to other children.

    JMO

    C.H.I.P was mentioned earlier as as some kind of organization which assists low income families and families in 'crisis' with medical support etc. (paraphrasing from what I recall).

    Oh, ok. Thanks.

    CHIP is a private organization not part of city government. I would doubt they have the right (is that the word? sorry, half asleep here) to conduct investigations as CPS does. And there are strict laws preventing CPS from releasing any information on the case to anyone. So CHIP would be on the outside looking in, so to speak, as it would be CPS that would have all the details regarding medical exams/rehab, what the parents have done and how the supervised visits and in-home therapy sessions progressed.

    http://chiprv.org/node/8

    http://chiprv.org/about-us

    I'd be interested in seeing the quote from CHIP; I know I probably read it somewhere along the line, just can't recall it at the moment. IF the refusal for home visit was toward a CHIP worker, there is nothing illegal in that; it's voluntary. They're under no obligation (as they would be with CPS) to participate.

    ETA: that if this happened after custody was returned to the parents, then at the very least that should have triggered another investigation by CPS.

    I'll look on the other thread about them refusing visits; I think it was on there I read about it.

    (sheesh, sorry about the mess up editing... I need to get some sleep)

    This case brings back to mind, an older case of little Joseph Wallace, who was returned to his violent and mentally unstable mother back in 1993. I will never ever for as long as I live forget little Joseph Wallace. It sure is amazing even this many years later, children are returned to abusive parents because it is believed it is in the best interest of the child to be raised with their 'natural' parent(s).

    Watch over little Aveion will you please Joseph. I hope you two are playing together. Forever young.

    You're right - it wasn't illegal for Aveion's "mother" to refuse their visits, but it was a red flag & CHIPS (supposedly) recommended that Aveion *not* be returned to his "mother".

    This was discussed in the previous thread & there's links to the CHIPs story, and Michelle Sigona (she talked to CHIPs).

    An older article regarding Joseph Wallace's murder and failure by the systems in place which were supposed to help him.


    http://www.nytimes.com/1996/07/26/us...pagewanted=all


    His death became a lightning rod for critics of the Illinois child welfare system, much as the death of 7-year-old Elisa Izquierdo, who died at the hands of her mother in New York City. Joey's hanging forced sweeping changes in the state's child welfare system and led to the dismissals of the administrators who had insisted on returning him to his mother from foster care even though psychiatrists had warned that his mother was mentally unstable and might well kill him.


    I can only hope the loss of little Aveion brings sweeping changes to VA state child welfare system as well.

    There was supposed to be a candlelight vigil at 5pm today. Was there? I haven't even had time to check the news today. I've been cleaning house and as I was taking the trashbags out of the house, I stared down at the black trash bag and started sobbing, as the thought of little Aveion possibly put into one of those and dumped just like trash...just the thoughts of that is just too terrible to imagine. I honestly CANNOT believe this is really happening right here in our community. I feel like I am living in a nightmare or have been watching the most aweful horror movie ever made. My mind can't comprehend what HELL that beautiful little boy must have lived through in his short, short life. Somebody, PLEASE find him and put his precious little body to rest. This is tearing me apart so bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It was my understanding CHIP involvement was mandatory during the 5-6 month 'home trial period' while the dept of CPS/State still retained legal custody of Aveion and only became voluntary after the state returned legal custody to the bio mom.

    IMO, it should have been a red flag that once Morgan Lockett regained legal custody she basically closed all doors to the assistance she and her POS dh were receiving for this child.

    Cubby, I understood that the same way.

    Beachlvr - I haven't even checked the news myself...I find that I'm as emotional about this as you are. I had thought about going to the vigil...but I just didn't think I could take it.
    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Love never fails.

    I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

    Hugs. I finally broke down today too beach. Perhaps it was the article I commented about earlier, perhaps it is that my son is at his dads and I have some child free time that I just have sobbed several times today.

    Phew...... My mind goes back to a Sunday in October of 2008 when my cat died. I drove all over trying to find a place to bring her. It happened to be unseasonably warm that day and in the 70's here. I knew I couldn't just dump my beloved pet of almost 20 years.

    How does someone do this to a child? I can't wrap my mind around what would make someone dump a child.

    Safer City Roanoke

    Safer City is a program sponsored by The City of Roanoke Police Department to help citizens learn ways to help make our city safer.

    I found the following FaceBook site when trying to find information on todays search for Aveion. Thought it might be helpful to add here.

    Bouncing off your post, Cubby --

    Michelle Sigona reported that CHIPs was involved with Aveion from an early age, and they are mandatory reporters - and they reported his case...that's when CPS/DSS stepped in & got him placed w/ foster care....CPS/DSS returned him to the house of doom, and CHIPs was denied visitation.

    IMO, CHIPs was involved early on due to his congenital medical issues (just from reading between the lines from what all has been reported).

    http://www.michellesigona.com/2010/0...-aveions-life/

    Aaaand, when I went back to read Michelle's report, I saw she's updated her post on Aveion's case:

    A significant change in the Lockettís family structure occurred in September 2009, when Aveion was returned to the home. This was approximately 4 months prior to Aveionís disappearance. Investigative interviews determined that upon Aveionís return to the home 4 months ago, the Locketts had begun toilet training. Research in child homicide has reflected that toilet training accidents are often the provocation for physical punishments, sometimes resulting in death.
    .....
    The family also experienced financial hardships (cable was disconnected) prior to Aveionís disappearance. The stepfather was unemployed at the time of Aveionís disappearance and the mother was employed at a minimum wage job.


    Sounds like the POS BL had lots of time alone w/ Aveion - and after reading sooo many similar cases - plenty of time to torture the little angel.

    No wonder he doesn't want the body found....Aveion likely died of a beating (or worse) before they could starve him to death.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Thank you for the above post Texas Mist. Now that is bringing to mind BL's comments about the burns on Aveion and that they did not seek medical treatment beause of their previous history with social services/CPS and because "Aveion had a high tolerance to pain". (paraphrased from memory).

    An unemployed overweight drug addict with a criminal history of domestic violence, along with the previous CPS history, doesn't strike me as the best caregiver or one to begin toilet training. Nor one to be a step dad or choice for a husband and father for more babies.......

    I wonder what other discipline issues will come out regarding Brandon Lockett. Any rumors floating around out there about his choice or preferences for discipline? Hmmmmm........

    More thinking outloud. Being familiar with townhome/condo/apartment communities simliar to the style tbe Locketts resided, it is not uncommon for both mail delivery and garbage pick up to be about the same time on the same day each week. If Brandon was home with those children on a daily basis I have no doubt he was familiar with both the day and time of mail delivery and scavenger/garbage pick up.

    If I were LE, I would be interviewing neigbors, the mail carrier, and the garbage man who picks up trash in that area if they noticed anything unusual or suspicious.

    IF BL dumped Aveions remains into the dumpster behind his house (which we saw in an earlier photo linked in the previous thread) a. that was the shortest distance to get rid of Aveions remains from his home. b. he could have disposed of the remains sometime in the middle of the night or wee hours or the am on the morning/evening prior to the day trash was collected, or he could have went out with a container of some kind while the garbage man was there. BL is not that bright a man. The question is, would he have given how and where to dispose the remains as much consideration or preperation as he did the concocted fake kidnapping story. Or, would he have wanted to get Aveions remains out of that house asap so the 4 year old didn't see anything and the smell of decomp hadn't started in the home. I wonder if there was any evidence or smell of decomp in the home.

    On another note, I wonder and worry about the 4 year old. What kind of effect is he or she having as a result of being tied up by fake kidnappers. I pray this child is able to provide LE with some compelling details regarding what occured that day.

    Didn't I read earlier that the family did not have a car. IF they didn't, the child was most likely placed in a trash container close by. The one mentioned earlier is possible. I don't know if he'd be that stupid to use his own trash can. But he is smart enough to not contact LE before he'd placed the body that so far, LE hasn't been able to locate after an extensive search.

    Wonder if they should check the trash pick-up day, just prior to reporting the child missing? Then try to locate where that trash is right now?

    Worth a shot, IMO. Of course it would be easier if the POS would just speak up, or....................maybe the .........................mother .

    I can't bear the thought of this child laying out there somewhere in the weather. Poor Aveion.
