February 18, 2007: the remains of a child are discovered in a Rubbermaid tub inside a rental storage unit in Tucson, Arizona. Thus begins the child abuse/murder investigation that resulted in new legislation governing Child Protective Services. This is not a dramatic retelling of events, but the day-by-day facts as reported by the lead detective on the case. While certainly of interest to anyone who feels strongly about protecting our children, Investigating the Death of Innocents will also appeal to anyone interested in seeing exactly how a police investigation is carried out, and how it proceeds from the first phone call through to the trial and sentencing of the criminals. This is a story that will break your heart, but also leave you respecting the police investigators and prosecuting attorneys whose dedication and hard work brought this case to a successful conclusion.
