I think you guys might have a typo here. The other two local media outlets are reporting that the child was 3 MONTHS old, NOT 3 years old!! Can you clarify this please????

We give alot of taxpayer monies to local agencies that are supposed to help people having problems with kids but evidently they do nothing. Salina is becoming the worst town in Kansas for children deaths by adults. We should be so proud. Time to pull monies from these agencies as they are not doing their jobs.
