A new study released earlier this month by the U.S. Department of Health found that child abuse deaths are on the rise nationally. Most of that increase was led by two states: Texas and Indiana. In the latter, child fatalities more than doubled in fiscal year 2016. In the last several weeks, prosecutors have filed serious child abuse charges against at least four men accused of injuring infants. In one case, 23-year-old Orlando Mota is accused of injuring his 1-month-old son Damian so severely the infant eventually died. In another case, 26-year-old Kyle Rice reportedly admitted to police he crushed his infant foster daughter’s hands out of frustration.
