State Senator Ken Yager intends to file legislation soon to ensure the Department of Children’s Services (DCS) performs in-person welfare checks on any adopted child where parents receive subsidy payments. This comes after Michael and Shirley Gray of Roane County were both arrested after one of their adopted children died and was reportedly buried on their property. Other minors they adopted were being held in what officers say was horrible conditions. A second child was later found buried at a home in Knox County the Grays lived in. The Grays continued to receive adoption financial benefits from the state well after the children died because DCS reportedly did not check on the minors.
