DSHS: Father’s visits should have been on neutral ground

Once again the Department of Social and Health Services proves that it is an agency that should be thoroughly investigated. A person who is the only person of interest in his wife’s disappearance is allowed near his children in a so-called supervised visit at his house and not at a secure location?

All meetings should have been on neutral ground and supervised by two people who were schooled in self-defense. DSHS now says there will be a formal investigation and review. Tell that to Charlie and Braden. The investigating should have been before the fact and two little boys would still be with their loving grandparents.

My prayers go out to the entire Cox family. I cannot imagine how they feel at this time. My heart also goes out to the first responders who witnessed this terrible event.
