ATLANTA (AP) - A statewide panel tasked with probing child deaths in Georgia is struggling to provide answers on the deaths and how future fatalities may be prevented. <br />
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported Sunday that a probe of 464 child death investigations by county review panels showed that no reports questioned mistakes by state social service agencies the children and their guardians had been involved with. <br />
The newspaper reports some investigations also took more than twice as long as they're legally allowed to. <br />

Tain says he supports a proposal in the state Legislature to transfer the panel's operations from the Office of the Child Advocate to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. <br />
