The Child Cases
Sudden child deaths are often assumed to be murder and caregivers are frequently the accused. FRONTLINE, ProPublica and NPR investigate, uncovering evidence of questionable convictions. In addition to the half hour video, there are links to articles about actual cases and links to actual interviews of authorities. There is also a link to a newspaper with an update of one of the cases.
