    ugh, another case where a young one dies after CPS involved numerous times

    http://www.ktnv.com/news/local/209673531.html

    Olsen was hospitalized with severe head injuries. The Clark County Department of Family Services was notified of the injuries on May 19. Olsen died on May 27.

    There have been no charges filed at this time but Bransen Locks was arrested on unrelated charges during the investigation.

    CCDFS received two prior reports for Olsen's family of alleged child abuse. However, charges were not filed in either case.

    In the report, officials were alerted of the child when the baby was unconscious under the care of an adult. A description of the report said the child's injuries were not consistent with what medical personnel were told.

    Las Vegas Metro police said Wednesday the child's injuries were considered suspicious.

    CPS also took another relative out of the home on Sunday but did not disclose that person's relation to the victim.

    Despite no prior history in Clark County, the report states the family was investigated for two prior incidents in Nye County in 2008 and 2010. Both cases were closed after allegations of abuse went unfounded.

    Olsen's caregiver was identified Wednesday as Bransen Locks, 36. Locks had been reported to child protection authorities on two other occasions. He was cleared of the charges both times.

    Rest in Paradise little Bently. May justice be swift and severe against those who harmed AND those who failed to protect you!

    It looks like Bransen Locks was officially charged on July 11, 2015 with first degree murder and child abuse/neglect with substantial bodily or mental harm. He's due to go to trial on May 23, 2016 at 9:30 am.

    http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/ccdc/P...=redrock&P=ccdcincustody/inCustodySearch.aspx

    He was first arrested on May 19, 2013 so I'm not sure why he was charged in 2015. Maybe the DA took it to the grand jury? Ah well, at least he's going to stand trial for his acts.

    Rayemonde, thanks so much for keeping on top of these cases!
