Then the girl - aged 8- died. It turned out that her stepmother and father had wrapped her so tightly in bedsheets and duct tape that she had slowly suffocated to death. The woman claimed that wrapping 'was standard way to calm restless kids' and had not previously hurt the girl. Investigation revealed that she was not a doctor, and had lied about nearly every detail of her background. Autopsy revealed dozens of signs of long-term physical abuse.
Girl's horrible fate resulted to an enormous shitstorm towards Child Protection Services, who were blamed for abandoning the girl despite multiple signs that the girl was extremely unwell with her father and stepmother. Two of the officials got judicial punishments from dereliction of duty. One of the officials in the case was so mortified about it that she suffered personal collapse of her own and had to leave job.
So as you can see, it is very thankless job. Damned if you do and damned if you don't.
