Amber Alert for 3-year-old girl from Kansas City, Kansas

An Amber Alert has been activated for a 3-year-old girl from Kansas City, Kansas.

Oliva Jansen is 3 feet tall. She weighs about 50 pounds and has brown hair and blue-green eyes. She was last seen wearing her pajamas, which included a pink top and purple or teal bottom. Her hair was in a ponytail, according to the Amber Alert.

Oliva’s father told police he woke up at 6:30 Friday morning and discovered she wasn’t in her bed and wasn’t inside their home. The back door of the house was open.

“Due to her age and a search of the area, investigators believe that she was taken from the location,” the Amber Alert states.

There is no known suspect or suspect vehicle at this time.

Kansas DCF has a very, very bad track record of children that have been reported repeatedly then dying at the abusers hands, even when there is ample proof that DCF themselves had gathered.
I did gather that and read it and believe you. As an overall subject everywhere is more what I was remarking on. The overall subject I think is a major one... In so many cases, AJ in Illinois etc. I see posters (this was at JT) saying the agency is the problem, they need more funding and more people and tons of other such things.. They are underfunded, short staffed. Not just IL. Not just KC. I agree. What you are saying about the area around you is what I think--you don't throw more money or staff at a system whose staff is already not doing their job....

I don't know what the answer is. I get like anyone and think why have more children when you can't take care of the ones you have but I also do not think in general it is anyone's right to decide that for another...

Tough touchy subject...

My thing is--my overall thing is--I don't think there is one easy answer or one faceted solution to the biggest problems...

I will say this. I don't know what is going on these past few weeks but we seem to have some custodial deals (not this one)... That one found with her son we were all worried about??? Get the entire country worried about his safety?? The King one is hitting the same vibes. Poor Olivia here was found deceased. But to parents playing a game? Which may be King and for sure seemed to be the case last week, no consequences?

I am still having a day aren't I? Sorry, don't read longwinded if don't want to...

it appears that DCF was called numerous times in the past with this unit this baby lived with for them not to have checked on her and not given up until they laid eyes on her at the least.

I did not know that and if that is the case they deserve to be thrown way under the bus... And backed over and gone forward over. And back again. I was talking only generally. I say and will be the first to say each case is different...

I don't know if anyone here followed the case of Pruitt... Randall Pruitt. She was a minor so I won't name her but she was named in media when she was missing. this teenager knew no one could help her she had tried so she traded one really bad situation I think for a slightly better one... In that case, home schooling and moving went on... As well...
I follow many legal cases thru until justice is served and this is one of them. His trial is scheduled for 10/29/2020 per public court records. The mother took a plea to tampering with evidence on 10/28/2019; appears she just got probation. 😞

I say and will be the first to say each case is different... Maybe someone should check CPS etc. agents and how they treat their own children.

We have a domestic abuse advocate who was in trouble for domestic abuse.. Such a world. Still employed...
i can't find the article now about how many times over the last few years they had been called to that address, not the Gibbs address. it was like 21 times over 5 years. it might have said authorities, as in not all dcf, but still, many too many calls in a short period of time. I thought it was in one of the ones posted here, but am not seeing it right now.

See below. From last page.

FIVE TIMES. In 7 months. And TWENTY-ONE TIMES in 3.5 years.
Straight up negligence.

KCKPD called to Olivia Jansen's home 5 times in 2020

Kansas City, Kansas, police were called to a home associated with 3-year-old Olivia Jansen five times in 2020, records obtained by 41 Action News show.

The calls included a welfare check on Feb. 28 and a juvenile abuse call on June 2.

Records do not, however, indicate if the juvenile abuse call was associated with Olivia.

According to records dating back to 2017, police visited the address 21 times between Jan. 2017 and July 2020.

Yeah, I try to look it up on occasion when I think of it, always been a tough one to get much info on since it went federal, etc. Also her being a minor... That mother wow... I feel she will be part of the case against him though but not sure I would trust her too far in that sense... His trial is finally coming this fall? Long overdue in my opinion... He is still locked up I hope?

1 week later, 3-year-old Olivia Jansen is laid to rest

A week ago today, the father of three-year-old Olivia Jansen reported her missing, triggering an Amber Alert.

By the end of the day, authorities found her body buried less than a mile away from where she had been staying with her father and his girlfriend. Howard Jansen III and Jacqulyn Kirkpatrick have been charged in connection with her death.

It’s a case that rocked the community and led to protests demanding justice and accountability

Today, the 3-year-old little girl was laid to rest.

There were many were in attendance. Cars could be seen flooding out into the street at Maple Hill Cemetery.

A visitation was followed by a burial for Olivia, who some say was failed by many.



Olivia Jansen was described as a talkative, ambitious, and sometimes bossy little girl with a cute lisp.

“She had such a short life. She didn’t have a chance to live her life,” one person said.

RIP child. There just is no possible way where you are now is not better than where you were. Even though your very perps sent you there. Hopefully they get sent somewhere too. For a very, very long time...

KCK 3-year-old found dead had 'severe bruising,' signs of abuse

Olivia Jansen, the 3-year-old Kansas City, Kansas, girl who was found dead hours after her father reported her missing on July 10, had “severe bruising” on her face and other apparent injuries that indicated significant abuse, according to new court documents obtained Monday.

An autopsy revealed the toddler had a cut on the back of her head and significant bleeding on the back of her brain, which was determined to be her cause of death. She also had bruises covering her arms and legs.

Court papers: Olivia Jansen had bruising all over body when she was found in Kansas City, Kansas

A 3-year-old Kansas City, Kansas girl reported missing weeks ago only to be found in a shallow grave the same day an AMBER Alert was issued for her was covered in bruises from head to toe and died of a brain bleed according to investigators.

The affidavit is heavily redacted and doesn’t reveal any interviews between Jansen III, Kirkpatrick and detectives. Both are still in the Wyandotte County Jail, held on $500,000 bonds, and due back in court on July 28.

Kansas’ child welfare agency declines to release public records on 3-year-old Olivia Jansen

Kansas’ child welfare agency balked at releasing records about a 3-year-old girl whose battered body was found this month, despite a 2018 law that aimed to make such documents more transparent.

That law says Kansas Department for Children and Families’ documents are public records in the event child abuse or neglect results in a child fatality or near fatality. However, the agency declined to release to The Associated Press records pertaining to Olivia Ann Jansen, saying it is still investigating whether Olivia’s death was a result of abuse or neglect. Prosecutors have charged Olivia’s father and his girlfriend with murder.

“Much to my dismay DCF continues to handle protective services as a confidential undertaking and it shouldn’t be,” said state Rep. John Carmichael, a Wichita Democrat. “The safety of our children is something all Kansans are entitled to know details and, if there has been malfeasance on the DCF, people need to know that.”

Ron Keefover, president of the Kansas Sunshine Coalition for Open Government, called the refusal to release the records based on the agency’s own ongoing investigation “a shameful attempt to dodge public scrutiny.”

“Clearly, law enforcement, the district attorney, and a judge who signed the warrant in the court case have made a determination of child abuse,” Keefover said.

Kansas DCF states Olivia Ann Jansen's death was result of child abuse

In a heavily-redacted court document released to KMBC 9 News Friday, Officers with the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department received a tip that afternoon that someone saw a man walking out of the woods that morning. Authorities searched the wooded area and found a trail that led them to an area with disturbed soil and branches that appeared to police to be a fresh gravesite.

In a Kansas DCF case summary also released Friday, the agency states Olivia's death was the result of child abuse.

The department listed two calls for service to Olivia's home leading up to the child's death.

The department noted:

Feb. 28, 2020 -- Two reports were made, one alleging that "dad" hit Olivia on the leg, leaving a bruise, and that the leg might be broken. Another report stated Kirkpatrick hit Olivia. The case was assigned to a worker that same day. DCF interviewed Olivia that day and no marks or bruises were observed. DCF notes that after reaching back out to the person how filed the report, the story was recanted. The report was ultimately determined to be unsubstantiated and the case was closed.

June 22, 2020 -- Reports were made stating a caregiver was unavailable for Olivia, or the caregiver was unable to care for the girl due to substance use. The case was assigned as a FINA, or Family Member in Need of Assistance. In FINA cases, the state has seven workdays to respond to the need. DCF notes a video call was initiated on June 30 with Kirkpatrick -- a video call was necessary as the two were reported to be out of state. The worker spoke with Olivia during the call and Olivia said she was excited for the upcoming Independence Day Holiday. Also as a result of the report, Howard Jansen was contacted on June 30 and asked to take a drug test. He tested positive for THC on July 7.
