Child Abuse Up In Southern Illinois

Child abuse is a growing problem in southern Illinois.

New data from the Department of Children and Family Services reveals that 75-percent of all abuse cases are happening downstate.

Part of the reason could be because there are fewer child welfare resources in that region.

Officials say they're trying to determine what's causing the problem so they can find ways to tackle it and turn things around.
