Marisa Kwiatkowski, Times of Northwest Indiana

Seven of the 25 Indiana children who died of abuse or neglect between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010 died in Lake County, a state report released Tuesday shows.

All seven died of abuse-related injuries, according to the report by the Indiana Department of Child Services. No Porter County children died as a result of abuse or neglect during that time period.

DCS' annual child fatality report analyzed the abuse- or neglect-related deaths of 25 Indiana children. Of the 25 cases, four deaths occurred in households that had prior contact with Child Protective Services.
