PETER CONNELLY was a victim of abuse that took his life away at 17 months.
His mother Tracey Connelly, her boyfriend Steven Barker and his brother Jason Owen were all legally responsible for his death.
Where are Baby P's killers now?
Peter 'Baby P' Connelly was found dead in a blood-stained cot at 17 months old.
A string of social workers had cleared him to stay in his home despite red flags.
He was even on Haringey's child protection register at the time of his death.
A GP had already noticed a head injury and bruises before Baby P's first birthday.

His mother Tracey Connelly, her then-boyfriend Steven Barker and Barker's brother Jason Owen were charged with causing or allowing Baby P's death.
Baby P's mother Tracey Connelly received a minimum sentence of five years.

Courts granted her request for parole on March 30, 2022 although a release date was not immediately set.
This was only the latest in a string of requests.
In fact, she was actually let out of jail in 2013 after a judge decided she was no longer a threat.
But she scuppered her chances at freedom by selling nude photos on the internet – a violation of her release terms.
Back to jail she went until finally earning her release once more in 2022.
Connelly notoriously ran up more than £500,000 in public Legal Aid fees in an attempt to prove her innocence during the Baby P trial, before making a last-minute guilty plea.
She later spent a further £14,000 in public money as part of a fruitless endeavour to regain custody of her three older daughters from behind bars.
On May 5, 2022, the Parole Board announced that she will be released from prison despite the Government challenge against it.
Justice Secretary Dominic Raab asked the Parole Board to review this decision as her actions were "pure evil" and that after this decision, the board "needs a fundamental overhaul – including a ministerial check for the most serious offenders."
Connelly began dating Steven Barker when Baby P was two months old.
Courts heard Connelly had posted on social media that she was "madly in love with the most amazing guy" in the last few weeks of Baby P's life.
The courts gave Barker the longest sentence related to Baby P's death.
Barker received a minimum prison term of 12 years.
Around the same time, he received a 10-year sentence for raping a two-year-old girl in a separate case.
He remains incarcerated as the Parole Board felt he has "refused to confront his crimes".
Barker's older brother, Jason Owen, moved into the Connelly home with a 15-year-old girl weeks before Baby P's death.
He was in his late 30s at the time.
He and Barker had previously been accused of assaulting their grandmother but she died before the case went to court.
He received a minimum three-year sentence connected to Baby P's death.
