An inquest into the death of a Toronto boy starved to death in the care of his grandparents continues to hear about a lack of records checks at children's aid.
Jeffrey Baldwin was just 21 pounds when he died -- about what he weighed when he was first sent to his grandparents four years earlier.
The inquest has heard a lack of records checks meant children's aid workers didn't look through their own files to discover disturbing details of the pair's past until after Jeffrey's death.
One-time supervisor Lorraine McNamara testified she had only a ``vague recollection'' of having met the family and remembered little of the case as a whole.
McNamara told the inquest there were no regulations or standards, when asked whether the agency would have checked the records of any prospective caregiver.
She said it would be unlikely in the case of a temporary caregiver, but once there was a possibility of a permanent placement, best practices would likely call for an internal records check, but it was discretionary.
