Number Of Abused Children Who Die Is Up In Indiana

The number of Indiana children who died from abuse or neglect surged during the first year of a statewide hotline to report such cases.

Officials with the Department of Child Services say many of the deaths involved social issues that the department can't control.

The annual report shows there were 40 deaths from abuse or neglect from mid 2010 to mid 2011 and that is 25 more than the year before.

Six of the children who died from abuse or neglect had a prior history with DCS.

Nearly half of the deaths from abuse involved children under a year old.

The report details children dying in horrible ways including a child who suffocated during an attempted exorcism.
