Steve wondered why the parents did not notice there was something wrong with the child.

Mario claimed that the pediatricians missed all the signs.

Erin was telling the truth: she has nothing to do with her nephew’s death. Erin’s sister also told the truth and was not to blame. As for Mario, he refused to take the polygraph test before the show, despite his intentions to know the truth.
