Frontline examines the child welfare system in the state of Maine with Failure to Protect: Part 1 - The Taking of Logan Marr, the first installment of a two-part documentary. In 2000, Christy Marr's two daughters, Logan and Bailey, were taken from her by the Maine Department of Human Services. Marr tried to follow the strict instructions regarding her jobs, boyfriends, and contact with family members. Logan had developed serious behavioral problems during her time in several different foster homes. In 2001, five-year-old Logan was found dead in the home of her foster parent Sally Schofield. A former Maine DHS caseworker, Schofield was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to 20 years in prison. Frontline interviews both Marr and Schofield. Part one aired on PBS in January 2003.
