Details of this case may never have come to light without the watchdog efforts of a weekly newspaper, The Mountain Citizen in Inez, which asked the CHFS for information on the case.
The cabinet did not respond in a timely fashion, as required by law, and then had the audacity to conceal vital pieces of information in the case.
In our opinion, it’s time to prosecute supervisors and/or staff members in the CHFS for criminal negligence or whatever charge is appropriate in such cases.
Costumed trick or treat kids will be ringing doorbells next week but little Watson Adkins won’t be among them.
