Children Murdered While Lost In The System

"Lost In the System" is a series on Fox 11 News/Studio 11 LA.

It's about families caught in a system that has repeatedly failed them with tragic results. This story is about a mother who repeatedly warned a judge, CPS workers and police that her little boy was being abused by his father. The judge told her if she continued to make such allegations, she would lose custody of her child. 8 months later, her son was murdered by the father.

We'd like to say it's an isolated incident. It's not.
