RIDGEFIELD, Conn. - The father of the 15-month-old baby who died in the car had gone to his place of employment with the child in the car and parked, Ridgefield police said Wednesday morning.

No 911 calls were received about the incident, Ridgefield Police Capt. Jeff Kreitz said. But police determined that the father had parked his car at his workplace in Ridgefield with his son inside.

"Ridgefield detectives are still conducting interviews to ascertain the exact amount of time the 15-month-old was left in the vehicle," Kreitz released in an email at 11 a.m. Wednesday.  

Police said late Tuesday that after finding his son in the car, the father drove him to Danbury Hospital

Police say the cause of death is still pending from the Connecticut Medical Examiner's Office.

In order to get away with this he must be related to a cop. Cut his balls off.

Don't blame the daycare. That's absurd. It isn't their responsibility to phone parents, who physically deliver a child to them, when they don't show up. And leaving a child alone in the car with the air conditioning running certainly isn't an alternative.

This is b/s. How do you drop your baby off everyday at daycare and then the day it is 90+ out forget you have your baby in the car? I don't care if you had to stop off at work to pick something up, you leave the damn car running w/ ac. b/c you are not that brain dead to see that there is a child in the back seat of your car. I'm sure was not sleeping as this is a everyday thing. To drop your child off. Why didn't the daycare call when the child was brought there on time? I know my daycare you question it! This is so upsetting. And this was not an accident!
Arrest this man there is not excuse great enough to not charge murder! Facts: left child in car for excess of 6 hrs, did not call 911 when you discovered what had just transpired

Especially when there has been a case in Georgia very similar! And all over the news!

Drip by drip .... Ever so slowly ... The story comes out. Good drama .... Bad reporting.
