A Toronto police officer said Tuesday he has heard "disturbing" third-hand information about the life of a seven-year-old girl who was found dead on Sunday, and now he's pleading for people with first-hand knowledge to come forward with details.
When emergency workers found Katelynn's body in an apartment in the west-end neighbourhood of Parkdale, there was evidence the Grade 3 student had been sleeping on the floor and had been subject to poor living conditions that he did not want to discuss.
Child services agencies are investigating whether they played any role in placing Katelynn in Irving's care.
Custody can be granted in some cases where the person has a criminal record, depending on the offence, according to an official with the Ontario Association of Children's Aid Societies.

What has happened to our "precious" society?
IMO: just following the rest of the world to the inevitable end.
