Three Child Protective Services workers have been fired following the mishandling of reports involving Colton Turner, whose mother told police died after hitting his head as the result of being assaulted.
In a report released Thursday, the agency says it failed to protect the boy:
Over the course of two years, Child Protective Services (CPS) received six reports and conducted four investigations into allegations that Colton Turner, born September 21, 2011, had been abused or neglected. In all of those investigations, there were failures to follow policy as well as mistakes in judgment by caseworkers and/or supervisory personnel. As a result, CPS failed to protect Colton Turner.
