Keanu Williams: Serious Case Review
A two-year-old boy from Birmingham who was beaten to death by his mother became 'invisible'' to the authorities while being subjected to months of cruelty, a damning report has found
A serious case review into the murder of Keanu Williams from Ward End concluded that professionals involved in his care failed to meet even basic standards of good practice.
The independent report, published on Thursday 3rd of October by Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board, said child protection workers in various agencies "collectively failed" to prevent Keanu's death.
Keanu, who was born in Torbay, died in Birmingham in January 2011 after suffering a skull fracture and a severe abdominal injury at the hands of Rebecca Shuttleworth.
Shuttleworth, formerly of Hay Mills, Birmingham, was jailed for life in June after a near-six-month trial heard her son suffered at least 37 injuries.
Making eight recommendations to the organisations involved in Keanu's care, the review's author said various agencies were guilty of a " loss of focus' ' after a core assessment made shortly before the toddler's first birthday.
The report stated: "The main finding of the review overview report was that professionals in the various agencies involved ... collectively failed to prevent Keanu's death as they missed a significant number of opportunities to intervene and take action.
"They did not meet the standards of basic good practice when they should have reported their concerns, shared and analysed information and followed established procedures.
"The serious case review panel was in agreement that Keanu's death could not have been predicted.
"However, in view of the background history of Rebecca Shuttleworth... it could have been predicted that Keanu was likely to suffer significant harm and should have been subject of a child protection plan on at least two occasions to address issues of neglect and physical harm.''
Excuses given to health professionals by Shuttleworth after incidents of abuse, including a radiator burn to his foot, were not credible, the review found.
The 182-page report said: " Keanu experienced a number of presentations to hospital and to the GP, which were all explained by Shuttleworth as bumps and falls due to unsteadiness.
"The last hospital presentation involved a child protection medical assessment which was not undertaken in accordance with good practice standards.
"Keanu was returned to Shuttleworth's care with a burn to his foot believed to have been caused accidentally by a hot radiator."
"Based on the medical evidence, this conclusion was mistaken and therefore Shuttleworth's description on the 'accident' was not deemed credible.''
The report follows other highly critical serious case reviews into child deaths, including the murder and starvation of Coventry four-year-old Daniel Pelka.
Noting similarities with other case reviews conducted in the West Midlands, the report into Keanu's death added: ''The standards of practice revealed when some frontline professionals and managers were undertaking basic child protection tasks were of serious concern as several opportunities to protect Keanu were missed.
"The core business of the Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board was characterised by inattention to procedures and protocols and an absence of reasonable judgment when making decisions about Keanu in a number of instances.
"From this it follows that the core business of the Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board was not functioning well enough to ensure effective multi-agency practice in meeting Keanu's needs.''
