    On Aug. 8 at 2:30 a.m., rescue crews and police who raced to the Budget Motor Lodge on U.S. 13, near New Castle, found the curly-haired girl dead. She had been beaten to death by her mother, police now contend.

    Paramedics arrived as another prostitute cradled the girl after trying to revive her and told police Autumn was dead before the 911 call was made. The girl had bruises on her abdomen, leg and scalp. A pathologist discovered that her bowel was perforated and ruled she died from blunt-force trauma, a victim of homicide.

    State child-protection officials are now reviewing their four investigations into Milligan, but acknowledge they did not take enough steps to protect her children.

    I was here earlier, read the links and others I'd found and didn't have anything to say either. What can we even say? Ugh. Poor baby girl... and the son too... sad...

    When Delaware child protection investigators descended on a seedy motel last spring to look into reports that a drug-abusing prostitute was neglecting her children, they failed to interview tenants who might have been able to confirm the allegations.
    Nor did they take other steps that might have uncovered evidence that Tanasia C. Milligan was an unfit mother whose two children needed to be removed from the unsafe environment.

    SNIP

    A News Journal story in November uncovered the four investigations of Milligan and the brutal killing of the vivacious, curly-haired girl her family described as autistic.

    SNIP


    Milligan's sister, Tiffany Greenfield, who reported her sister to authorities last April and now has custody of Ethan, said the findings don't tell her anything new or bring her family any solace.

    "We already knew that was the case," Greenfield said. "We felt like they just didn't care, that Autumn and Ethan weren't enough of a concern for them."

    "They had repeated calls, not from some stranger, but from a family member, so why wasn't any action taken? They should have gone to the motel and checked on the kids or removed the kids or made my sister do a urinalysis.

    "I don't know if they are overworked or not but they need to hire more people or stop spending money on dumb things. Nobody did anything for us but now we'll change it so another kid won't die."

    Very Lengthy article about the review of what went wrong with CPS investigations of multiple and repeated allegations of abuse against this mother.
