Think of a crowd the size of a sold-out rock concert at Oklahoma City's Ford Center, plus a few thousand more. Or, think of the population of a city like Ardmore or Ponca City. That's how many children died in Oklahoma in the last 30 years — more than 24,000. The total includes everything — deaths from illness, natural causes, accident, suicide, neglect, abuse, murder and unknown reasons.
Oklahoma has been ranked the worst state for child abuse deaths, but state officials insist the label is unfair.
