CPS' Slow Response Leads to Child's Death
Posted Tuesday, September 3rd 2013 @ 7am

Records showed a delay by Sacramento County Child Protective Services in responding to the case of an infant who was considered at risk after tests found he was exposed to drugs through his mother's milk. Ryder Salmen died September 2012 after overdosing on a fatal cocktail of Xanax, methadone, and the painkiller Opana. The 8-month-old boy's mother had been warned five months earlier to stop breastfeeding due to high levels of methadone in her baby's bloodstream.
