DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) - The mother of a 15-year-old Dyersburg girl who was killed by her father after she claimed he sexually abused her is suing the state.
Jessica Readen, of Roseburg, Ore., claims the Department of Children's Services failed to protect her daughter when it moved her into the house of neighbors Todd and Susan Randolph, two doors down from her father, Christopher Milburn.
Milburn killed himself on Aug. 2 of last year, shortly after killing his daughter and Todd Randolph.
The State Gazette reports Readen's suit claims the Randolphs called a DCS caseworker's cell phone repeatedly on Aug 1 and 2 because they were concerned about Milburn's behavior, but their calls were never answered.
