The grandparents of a Kansas girl who was killed say they raised concerns with child protective services before her death.

The girl's grandmother says she expressed fears to the  Kansas Department for Children and Families on June 21 that drugs were in the home where Olivia resided. 

The girl's body was found Friday nearly nine blocks from her Kansas City home, from which her father had reported her missing.
