This whole case seems strange to begin with, as usual facts are being withheld from the general public. Anyone care to comment on what they think.

Yeah, something doesn't small right ... denial or conspiracy?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

I can just see them spinning this into Casey Anthony 2.0, nancy grace needs to boost her ratings somehow. The best way to do it over the body of a dead child.

I find it inconceivable that this man, responsible for taking his son to the daycare center, would just "forget" his son was in the car especially after apparently having breakfast with him at some restaurant.

Something is indeed amiss. I also find it almost sickening that the mother is just acting like it was all some sort of freakish accident but it is also possible she is putting up a front to to appease others. I don't know. It's just so horrible, can't imagine what the child was experiencing before he passed out.

All I know is when I look at that little boy's beautiful face and little smile, my heart hurts. I hope justice is served whatever that may turn out to be.

I saw today the mother is standing behind her husband.
I can't make a judgement because I can't see forgetting my child in a car, but it happens, by accident and it also happens on purpose. So again, I hope justice is served. Although nothing will make up for losing that little boy!

It would be horrific to be imprisoned for an inconceivable but tragic accident, and as a parent I know, unfortunately, accidents happen. Some  far more tragic than others but they happen. Some parents put their kids at risk every day and it's just luck they get away with it.

If I had done this by accident I would probably want to be put in prison or at least live out my life that way.

But if he is guilty I'd hate to see him get off, smiling wife beside him, and have more kids he could abuse or kill.

there was a similar case a few years back involving a woman who forgot her child in the babyseat and when to work
it's incredibly tragic and you want to think that no one could ever forget something so important, but it happens and to be honest my heart goes out to this man and his family.
there's a lot of pain and grief to come.

I may be naive but it's inconceivable to me that a man would murder his own toddler in such a gruesome way.  The wife fully supports him so my instinct is that it is just an accident.  The bit about him researching time it takes for heat death to occur is VERY suspicious though.  There was a case similar to this where I used to live a couple of years back.  A grandfather did something completely out of his routine and was to drop his grandson at a daycare.  it was July and the temp in the mid 90's that day.  He discovered the tyke dead at the end of his work day.  I had occasion to meet the man at my work place and I'm chilled to this day to think of the blankness in his eyes.  It was a couple of weeks after the event and he seemed completely unhinged and lost.  I felt so badly for him that I'll never forget it.  I cannot imagine bearing that grief for the rest of my life.  I saw an interesting idea online a couple days ago when this story broke.  The idea was that any time one had a child in a car seat the driver should remover their left shoe and place it on the back seat next the car seat.  No matter how distracted a person might become they'd never forget their shoe...

This is just one of those stories that kind of leave you at a loss for words....

Like others here, I find the father's researching of "hot car deaths of children" online prior to the death of his own toddler in a hot car, to be particularly concerning. His excuse that he "...was fearful that this could happen." does not ring true to me.

And reports that the child had, just prior to it's death, been having difficulties sleeping and had to sleep in the marital bed leads me to wonder if this isn't a case of jealousy.

View Postand then, on 29 June 2014 - 05:50 AM, said:

so my instinct is that it is just an accident.

An "accident" huh?
So how does a father take the time to put his child in a car seat, go to a restaurant and take him out of the seat and have breakfast with him, put him back in the car seat and then promptly "forget" from one minute to the next that he had his kid with him and that he was supposed to take him to day care?

I just fail to see the "accident" in all this.
See...forgetting ice cream in a car and it melts (making a huge mess) is an accident.  Bumping your coffee cup and spilling a bit of it is an accident but leaving your child in the car for hours? I just am not so eager to call it a slip-up.

Our children should be a priority and if one are SO busy and distracted that one cannot even take a few moments out of one's oh-so-important schedule to make sure they are safe then one needs to make other arrangements to ensure their safety.
