It is hard to believe it has already been two years since I last wrote about the Klapheke case. Harder still to believe that it has taken five and a half years for this case to come to trial. You can look back to my old article for some insight into the case.
An Abilene CPS worker implicated in a case that led to the death of 1 child and severe neglect of 2 others is standing trial for allegedly withholding a photograph of the dead child from medical professionals.
On Monday, 350th District Court picked a jury and began the trial against a former Texas CPS program director Gretchen Denny who is accused of withholding evidence from the Abilene police during the investigation of 22-month old Tamryn Klapheke’s death in August of 2012.
This investigation resulted in a major shake-up within CPS.
