NASHVILLE, TN (AP) – A review by a Nashville newspaper has found that many of the recently released case files of children who died or nearly died after being under the supervision of the state Department of Children's Services were not filled out until months after a child's death.
           
The Tennessean reviewed 36 of the 42 records of cases released at a hearing on Friday by Davidson County Chancellor Carol McCoy.
           
The newspaper also found that many of the records lacked legally required information.
           
The release of the documents was the result of a lawsuit filed by a group of media organizations led by The Tennessean and including The Associated Press that sought access to records of children DCS was supposed to be helping.
