Teams that investigate the deaths of children are being taught the latest ways to learn if the death is a killing. Child Fatality Review Boards exist in every county to look into the deaths of children. The Department of Social Services is continuing its workshops throughthe next month, teaching representatives of those teams the newest techniques for determining whether the death of a child is suspicious. Leading the training is Gus Kolilis with the Department’s Legal Services Division. He says technology is improving every day and some new research is important for these teams. Kolilis also says information needs to get around about other scientific advances that help the teams better identify trauma.
