One of the worse cases that social service was supposed to be following but failed to protect Terrell Peterson.It was not just the social service that failed this child. It was every person who was supposed to be guarding this child to ensure that he was in no danger. Even when he went to the hospital with third degree burns, the hospital never reported it. The judge dismissed the case against his grandmother that she was abusing him but since no one brought Terrell to court so that he could testify, the judge dismissed the case.
Terrell's grandmother and aunt and the aunt's boyfriend killed him. He was beaten starved, burned, etc. His mother was a drug addict so when he was born, he was born with cocaine in his system.
At the age of 5 yrs, Terrell weighed 29 pounds. He went into cardiac arrest and died. People often say that death was the best thing for this young boy ... because he was living in hell.
