Complete list of day care red flags missed in the Aniya Day-Garrett homicide case (timeline)
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland 19 is continuing to ask questions in the death of 4-year-old Aniya Day-Garrett including, "Who knew what and when?"
The day care, Harbor Crest Childcare Academy in Euclid, had a file of 14 reports called "Child Observation Reports" dating back to 2015.
The Cuyahoga County Child and Family Services (CCCFS) office says it first received three calls of possible abuse in 2017, but has yet to say exactly when.
The earliest report taken at the day care goes back to back to 2015. Those observations of possible abuse ranged from bruises on her face and arms, scrapes and a busted lip.
In some cases Aniya herself told staff that her mother, Sierra Day and mom's boyfriend Deonte Lewis were responsible for the bruises.
Day and Lewis were charged with aggravated murder.
The question becomes who dropped ball?
In the Euclid Police report Tamika Robinson tells police ownership of the day care changed sometime in 2017.
It wasn't until May 18, 2017 when a report was taken at the day care stating, "Right side of head and ear, swollen and dried blood," that Robinson said she called EMS and the previous reports were found.
Robinson found the previous reports when she tried to file the dried blood paperwork in Aniya's folder.
Cleveland 19 has asked CCCFS to be more specific on when it received the three calls in 2017, and from whom.
CCFS has said they investigated Aniya's case and found no reason to remove her from her mother's home in 2017.
