ABSTRACT
The article reports that a case review into the death of two-year-old Casey Leigh Mullen, published by Leeds Safeguarding Children Board, has revealed that social workers have failed to carry out a core assessment in the case. The child was referred to social services after her mother took her to hospital for treatment on a burn. A decision was made to carry out a core assessment, but it was never completed and the case was closed. The child was later raped and murdered by her uncle.
