NC Agents Probe Child Welfare Agency In Davis Case

Agents with North Carolina's criminal investigative agency have started a probe into whether child welfare workers turned over complete records of their contacts with the family of a slain 5-year-old.

A spokeswoman for the State Bureau of Investigation said Monday agents will look into whether Cumberland County's Department of Social Services provided police with complete and accurate records in the Shaniya Davis case.

Cumberland County District Attorney Ed Grannis and Fayetteville Police Chief Tom Bergamine requested the probe.

Shaniya's mother, Antoinette Davis, is charged with human trafficking and child abuse by prostitution. Mario McNeill, an acquaintance of Davis', is charged with raping and killing the girl last month.
