Department of Social Services officials have another case of child abuse on their hands that some are saying could have been prevented. A Kansas City mother and her boyfriend are charged with many counts of sexual abuse against two pre-teen daughters. The girls’ father says he tried to let Division of Family Services investigators know something was wrong, but he was ignored. Reports say a hot line was called 32 times from 1992 to 2001. While not giving any more details in this matter, spokeswoman Deb Hendricks says officials are looking at the division’s role in the case. This case comes on the heels of the Dominic James case in Southwest Missouri. James was the two-year-old who died in foster care. The foster father is facing second-degree murder charges in the case. In addition, a state investigation into how DFS operates has been launched, and Social Services Director Kathy Martin resigned from her post.
