    After reading the article, it looks like CPS had numerous opportunities to investigate thoroughly, remove the kids from home and terminate the parental rights. Unfortunately Holli had to pay the ultimate prize with her life, due to what sounds like a sloppy investigation.

    Exactly. This is just so infuriating. Authorities knew she was abused for many years.In 2008 she was determined to have an STD. Yet seems nothing was done.

    Why did they allow her to stay with mother even after pregnancy was disocovered? Just another example of nothing being done until its' too late. What was done after she told the school she was abused?
    Step-father was told by phone to stay away from the home. Police couldn't even bother to tell him in person?
    Surprisingly (not) phone instructions didn't work.

    "On Jan. 29, a law enforcement officer over the phone told James Holland to leave the residence, as he was not allowed to have contact with Holli or the sibling."

    You can read here the horrifying timeline.
    When Holli was found to have an STD in 2008 (and she had vaginal injuries believed to be 2 weeks old at the time), CPS did an investigation. And what a brilliant investigation it was (not). The guy that CPS decided was responsible, was in prison since 2004. These people must need a flashlight to find their own behind in the dark.

    "James and Debi Holland are cleared. Based on James and Debi’s statements to CPS, the agency finds abuse occurred by Chris Jeffcoat ; however, Jeffcoat was imprisoned at the time."

    The 18-year-old told a school worker her stepfather had impregnated her. She was found dead in her home in Lubbock, Texas with uterus removed. The details were revealed in an arrest warrant for her mother Debi Holland. It alleges she knew her husband was abusing her special needs daughter. Stepfather is held on three counts of continuous sexual abuse of a child.

    I am so glad these kinds of predators get bullied and live in constant fear/hell in our prison system. Poetic justice.

    He is a hulk of a man. Other prisoners might be scared of him.

    I know. And people wonder why I prefer to hang with my cats. The depravity of some "humans" leaves me speechless.

    When specifically asked whether Mom knew about James and Holli having sex, Holli said yes, Mom told her not to tell anyone because Mom needed James to pay bills.

    [..]

    When a CARE exam for Holli was suggested, Debi became argumentative and said that it did not make any sense to perform a CARE exam on Holli. Based on Holli's statements, Debi Holland covered up James' molestation of her daughter and was complicit in the continuing molestation.

    Wouldn't be the first time, would it?
    There has been a lot of issues with CPS across the country, and in TX in particular.
    This case unfortunately doesn't stand out compared to others.
    This girl might be alive if she was removed from the home after she made the allegations specifically naming step-father as the one who impregnated her.
    Right now CPS goal is to "keep families together" which sure seems to me leads to children being abused and killed, because not all families should be kept together.
    In 2008, Holli was discovered with penetrating injuries and an STD. The guy CPS decided was responsible had been in prison for 4 years at that point.
    How CPS decided that recent injuries could be blamed on him is beyond my understanding. There might be no way to precisely pinpoint the timeline of the injuries, but injuries that are over 4 years old aren't going to be confused with injuries that are 2 weeks old. That just tells me they are not even trying.
