Public Records Show ... Details of Starving Boy Case

KING 5 TV finally obtained emails from DSHS detailing the facts in a case of a little boy apparently starved by his father.

Says KING 5: "The e-mails were written by a high ranking official at the Department of Social and Health Services. The administrator admits the public wasn't given the whole truth about what really happened to that little boy."
