Where’s the investigative reporting?

If I understand this correctly as it is reported, the reporter asks the adoptive mother what happened to Cleo and then takes her word for it? There’s an open police investigation into her death, but the reporters don’t follow up and verify? This is super strange to me and not thorough reporting by any stretch. Further, the reporter is super intrusive. The woman says she doesn’t want to be recorded and then you record it anyway? That is a basic ethical violation and I can’t believe she passes it off like she did the right thing. I suggest the report look at the reporting of Madeline Barron from APM and take some cues. That’s how it’s done.
