Monday night's topic is the lack of transparency in child-welfare cases that end with the death of a child.

In one such case, a little boy named Andres Estrada was killed on his street despite numerous calls and complaints about neglect in his home. Two agencies that received complaints and knew about a clear pattern of no supervision in the Estrada home are silent about the case.

Could Andres have been better protected? See what happens with 9Wants to Know attempted to get answers.
