I think any social worker involved in the cases of the children who were left in abusive homes to be murdered should face charges. I'm personally upset because I'm a good parent, live in a good home and I love my kids endlessly, but my 2 year old got in my purse while I was driving down the road and got into a bottle of meds. Since I took my child to the er to make sure she was ok...i now have social service workers checking up on ME! Where was that concern for the kids being killed?

It's absolutely amazing that she hasn't gone down sooner. She failed to run a back ground check and placed a child in an abusive home where nobody knew the bad past of this man her aunt housed with however could have known if they had done their jobs and realized he was a bad person. Instead the child an aunts child were both physically abused. For that fact aunt got in trouble for neglect ( confused) and man got in trouble for abuse his punishment was two yrs PROBATION that's it and when another child was abused sob got 2 yrs probation funny how the system works huh!! And if they had ran that check they would have seen the 10 pages of criminal records including MURDER of his fellow thief while stealing drugs. Now all that said Donna is a person who should not be with dcs and should be locked up this death of the child is one of many problems that she could have prevented and there are many more but u know they really target the lower class people because they don't have money to fight back!!

I sought help from this cold,uncaring Donna Monroe with concerns about my grandchild 3yrs.ago.She treated me like I was a waste of her time and wouldn't even just hear my concerns.I remember being so upset with her and thinking,"How could the system be so uncaring".So many children are not properly taking care of and need us to come forward for them.As I read all this stuff about her,I think...This could have very well been my grandchild due to her uncaring,unconcern about children.Her duties and obligations was to protect children.She showed me that day that she could care less about a child.There is no telling how many children have had to suffer due to you,Mrs.Donna Monroe.What if this would have been your daughter?I hate you for all the hurt you have caused for children and all the worry you have left family's with over a child they'd give their life for.You are heartless and should have never been in that position.I hope you are haunted every night by these precious children that could still be with us if not for you.Rest in Misery Mrs.Donna Monroe!

I think the system is messed up. Like this was happening and she let things slide. But you let someone call and say a house is a little dirty and they are on it.

I think she is a sick person that should have helped those poor helpless children get out sooner. Thise children especially Amy Dye didnt deserve to have a social worker like her. If she cant do her job or doesnt want too then our government needs to have the sense to fire her and I do think she should be held responsible also for both counts of murder because if she would have done her job right those children would still be alive today I believe she should get the same sentence as Garett Dye because she is just as guilty as him and I think Amy's parents also need to be charged even if its only child neglect and abuse! This whole case makes me sick because there are still guilty people out there.

You people think the social workers in the local office placed that child? Wrong a different division did that! You think Donna Monroe made the decision about what to investigate or what steps to take? wrong her supervisor made those calls! You think that Sarah gill kept information from the media? Wrong, only Frankfort can make that decision! You think Sarah changed how the case was accepted? wrong, only supervisors can make that decision!Donna had not had involvement in that case in years and you ignorant people want to blame her? The cabinet will be re-worked. Do you know what that will me to the public? A lot more kids removed, don't complain when kids are being removed for every referral! the blame lies with the families that don't act to protect themselves and each other. No one knows what happens behind closed doors. The local front line workers do not get to make the decisions about accepting cases, removing kids, or releasing information to the media! Educate yourself about the system before you suggest how to fix it! It needs fixed but look to those who are making the decisions!

That is right but this thread is blaming one person who had no authority to make decisions. So clean house and make changes but look to the ones who make those decisions don't believe everything you read and follow the scapegoat the media has followed like lambs to slaughter! I don't know who makes the decisions but i know enough to know that the social workers don't get to make those decisions they come from higher management just like anywhere else.

Donna Monroe is responsible.It's all in the Todd County news papers.She didn't care about children or didn't want to do the job she was being paid to do.I'm so thankful,Donna Monroe...that you are no longer in that line of work.We've lost enough children due to you.You failed my grandchild as well.I hope you see these babies face everyday and know you caused all that happened to them.
Shame on you Donna Monroe

It has got to be hard to be that ignorant..I suggest you re-read the articles from beginning to end and not pick out a word here and there and make your own story up. If you have trouble comprehending what you read maybe someone could read the article to you.

All of you that are so quick to point your fingers need to stop. You have read something in the media, you twisted it and now you are bashing someone based on false information. Maybe you feel so negative because you have had social services involved in your or your families life and you are mad. All that energy should be pointed towards fixing the system. You think social workers have so much power. They have very little power, they are closely supervised by higher ups and are guided by policy and procedure. If you think that the system failed these children then go after the system. Make phone calls to your representatives and complain about the system. As with any big agency or whatever, someone has to be the scape goat because the big wigs are not going to take the blame. You finger pointers are feeding into their agenda of shifting the blame to a social worker that was closely guided by her superiors. In the Cabinet's eyes the system is perfect, if they were to admit that the system is screwed up, how would that look for funding and everything else. So take a deep breath, re-read the articles..all of them not just Todd Counties and think about it.
Explain please

I agree. The system is the problem and I think all of the stories in the Todd County paper and the statewide papers say that, but Donna, who is a friend, falsified records and that doesn't go a long way toward her case. Also, she was involved with the kid that sexually abused a little girl on a school bus a few years back. That plus the kid in Oak Grove and Amy Dye was just too much heat on her, the state does what it does best and started getting rid of all of those who could cause problems. They let these employees resign so they can keep their insurance and retirement, but they also ensure the employees don't talk to the media or anyone even when they are being run through the ringer. I hope Donna eventually tells her side of the story, but I'm afraid her life as a social worker is over.

Wrong....Social service has never been involved in my family.But when I went to Donna Monroe to discuss concerns about my grandson, just like Amy Dye and all the other children she didn't try to help or even do some investigating to see if my concerns were just...if not for me,she should have done it for the child's sake.She said to me,'' I have been involved in this family for a long time''May goodness...doesn't that tell you something.Maybe then,you could understand why I may have some concerns.I love my grandson more than life and I won't stand by and watch without speaking up if his well-being is at risk.She never investigated my concerns and treated me like I was a waste of her time.I since have talked with a family member of my grandsons and have heard nightmare stories about her involvement with this family.The family member went to her when she was a child,told of things a step-parent was doing to her and she said this person has a history of lying...she told me the same about this person.I met the person when I found out I was gonna be having a grandson in that family and he said to her in front of me,"Like I've always said,you should have been done away with at birth"...so I do not believe this person was lying about all things.Donna Monroe is heartless about children and should have never been in that position.She had a nasty attitude and seemed to me to not want to be bother with maybe other cases.I hope she is haunted with Amy's memory.I read all about her in the Todd Co.Standard newspaper.Now,they are not gonna write that stuff about her if it wasn't true,that is slander and big trouble for that paper.You must be a family member of hers and my heart goes out to you,but facts are real...SHE FAILED PRECIOUS CHILDREN!!!!She was put in the line of work to protect them and did not.

You cannot blindly believe what the media is printing. You hear one side and that is the side the system wants you to see. Like I said don't judge to quick. Know the whole story first.
