A state watchdog agency has found that Maine’s child protective services had multiple interactions with the family of Jaden Harding in the years before he was born, but there were no interactions during the short life of Harding, whose father killed him in spring of 2021 when he was just 6-weeks-old.

For around 10 years before Harding was born, his mother and her relatives had numerous interactions with Maine’s child protective services, and there were two instances in which protection workers made “unsound safety decisions,” according to the report from the Office of Program Evaluation & Government Accountability, or OPEGA.
