CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Cuyahoga County Division of Children and Family Services have agreed to a sit-down, round-table style interview regarding how CCCFS assesses and services child cases.
CCCFS has made available two Deputy Directors and we’ll bring you the discussion live at 2 p.m. We’ll be speaking with:
- Tamara Chapman-Wagner, Deputy Director Cuyahoga County Division of Children & Family Services
- Jacqueline McCray, Deputy Director Cuyahoga County Division of Children & Family Services
Heads turned locally and nationally to CCCFS after the death of Aniya Day-Garrett, age 4, who died suddenly at a residence on March 11. The child died from head injury complications and suffered from malnutrition. Her mother, Sierra Day and mom’s boyfriend Deonte Lewis were arrested and charged with aggravated murder.
Aniya Day-Garrett had reported to her daycare provider 8 out of 14 times that documented her physical appearance how mother was hurting her between 2015 and 2017. The ownership of Aniya’s daycare changed in 2017. It wasn’t until May 2017 when Aniya came into the daycare facility with head wounds, and a bleeding ear, that daycare owner Tamika Robinson found the pattern of abuse. Robinson immediately called for an ambulance when she saw the child’s head. She filled out a “child observation form” and went to put it in the child’s folder when she saw the other reports, and what appeared to be a pattern of abuse. The 14 incident reports noting mom’s abuse and the child’s injuries were handed over to CCCFS and the Euclid Police Department.
