A year ago, a man drove to the top of a bridge, held his 5-year-old daughter over the side and let go.
It was a horrifying act that left a community shaken. He must have been crazy. It was the only thing that made sense. No one could have predicted this, his family said. He loved his daughter, Phoebe. And yet, for years, police had documented violence between Phoebe's parents, and child protection workers had visited her home five times. Seven times, people called the abuse hotline, fearing for her safety. And still, no one stopped it.
