Many were unsubstantiated, or the family couldn’t be located.
Among them: In August and October of 2013, hotline calls were made alleging that Adrian was acting out and had been eating out of a trash can and starting fires.
According to the records, the worker assigned to the case was unable to locate the family in Kansas but found them in Missouri.
The worker called the Missouri hotline and reported it, records show.
14, 2012, eight days after the hotline call, records show; Michael Jones was interviewed a week later.
In late July 2011, someone reported that Heather and Michael Jones’ children had no food and there were guns lying around the house. In a statement Tuesday as the records were released, Gilmore said she and her staff members “remain deeply saddened” by Adrian’s death.
“As the records reveal, DCF staff followed the family, as Michael and Heather Jones worked constantly to evade our intervention,” Gilmore said.
“Even when the Jones family moved to Missouri and was no longer within our jurisdiction, our social workers continued to make efforts to communicate with Missouri officials to ensure the family was provided with services and assessed. Sadly, despite our efforts, this tragedy unfolded — the very worst possible outcome.” Two Kansas lawmakers told The Star on Tuesday that they still had questions about Adrian’s case. Louis Ruiz, a Kansas City, Kan., Democrat, said he wasn’t satisfied with how DCF had handled the case.
Ruiz introduced a bill dubbed Adrian’s Act earlier this month that would expand the list of people who would be required to report suspected cases of child abuse. ” Ruiz said about the questions he still has about the case. It didn’t happen overnight.” Adrian’s Act appears unlikely to pass this session as lawmakers grapple with budget and tax issues in the waning days of the 2017 session. Linda Gallagher, a Lenexa Republican and vice chairwoman of the House Children and Seniors Committee, said she wasn’t sure whether a task force lawmakers are pushing for would hone in on any one case, even Adrian’s.
