Missed chance in toddler’s death?


(WFLA) – Previously confidential records released on Wednesday show a child welfare worker visited the home of 2-year-old Jordan Belliveau the night before the Florida toddler was found dead.

According to those documents, a caseworker from the private child welfare agency known as Directions for Living, met with Belliveau’s mother, Charisse Stinson, on August 31. During that visit, the case manager warned Stinson that her son could once again be taken away from his mother and father and placed in a foster home. 

The next day, police say Stinson struck and killed the two-year-old boy in a fit of frustration. 

Stinson later confessed to dumping Belliveau’s body in some woods nearby, and fabricating an elaborate story of stranger abduction that triggered a $500,000 manhunt for the child. She was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.
