AN independent report has found official agencies missed opportunities to deal with concerns about the killer of teenage murder victim Casey Kearney.

A report into the care provided to Hannah Bonser - who was convicted in July of the murder of Doncaster schoolgirl Casey in Elmfield Park - says that no single ‘agency’ owned Bonser’s care and frequent movements between agencies resulted the care she received being ‘fragmented’.

The Independent Multiagency Agency Report, written by Professor Pat Cantrill and published today, concludes that there were missed opportunities to work with Bonser more effectively and she makes 21 recommendations for organisations directly involved or interested in her care. They cover a number of areas, including better monitoring, risk management, record keeping and training.
