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.

    Good. Every single person who failed this little girl should get their slice of punishment.

    Thanks S. Very well put. DSS doesn't have time to monitor the complaints. I thinks they are devoted full time to make sure the illegals get a share of the tax dollars that we pay. It is so unreal how stupid our government is when it comes to this program. I grant you right now if i quit work, start on drugs,and start drinking i would qualify for the programs at Social Service. Oh wait. I have a car in my name.Oops. Disqualified. I have worked all my life, and now penalized becasue i have something to show for it.Get these dead beats off the program, and give to the elderly who so rightly deserve it. This is an issue that needs to be addressed and i am willing and ready to address it. But who to? It is time to stand up and be heard. right now i know of 3 illegals, working in this area. on Temporary layoff. Work one week and off one week. They can not draw unemployment because they are illegal, but they can get food stamps and medicaid. What does this say about DSS in Duplin County??????

    There is so much not known by reading this "news" article. If DSS in any way could have done anything at all to save this child from the abuse and death she suffered and didn;t, everyone that had anything to do with this case should be arrested and put on trail for her death. I will wait and see the rest of the story unfold.

    Take it from someone who is familiar with the Dept. of Social Services up close & personal,from having worked with them many years in the judicial is the most useless organization there ever was...they could care less about their cases, only about getting a paycheck and ruining peoples lives... DSS in every county should be shut down & disbanded...believe me,the public would fare much better. Their whole existence is to perpetuate fraud & use taxpayers money to support lowlifes who refuse to work for a living....Unfortunately our government continues to fund this agency....if only the public knew what really goes on,there definitely would be a revolt....
