An Alabama couple is facing criminal charges for the death of their toddler son, who police said was found dead Sunday in a hot car.

The toddler was found unresponsive on the spot

Officers were sent to Hodges around 4:00 pm. against the background of reports of a three-year-old child with no answer in the car.  Franklin County Police said in a statement that an ambulance attempted to resuscitate the boy, but he was pronounced dead on the spot.

The boy’s parents, 20-year-old Dakota Fowler and 21-year-old Brandy Burks, reportedly said they last saw their baby at midnight as they put him to bed.  When they woke up at 3:00 pm, they couldn’t find their son and found him in the car, police said.

Investigators identified the deceased child as Bentley Fowler.

Autopsy reports revealed that the toddler died due to heatstroke

On Sunday the temperature in Hodges reached 93 degrees.  Although Fowler and Burks were arrested and charged with manslaughter, Franklin County Sheriff Shannon Oliver called their son’s death an accident.

The baby’s body was sent to the Alabama Department of Forensic Medicine for an autopsy.   Records show Fowler and Burks remain in prison.

According to No Heatstroke, Bentley Fowler became the 15th Child to die in a hot car this year.  In 2019, 52 children died from car heatstroke.

I Have An Update From KidsandCars.org

Unfortunately, there have been 15 hot car deaths this year in the U.S.  Not surprisingly, given the pandemic and children being home more frequently, the percentage of children that gained access to a vehicle on their own is nearly double the average this year (47% this year vs 26% on average).

Today, Thursday, August 13th KidsAndCars.org is joining the National Highway Safety Administration  and is hosting a Tweet-up to raise awareness about preventing hot car deaths.  Please join us in posting throughout the day using the hashtags #heatstrokekills, #lookbeforeyoulock and #passtheHotCarsAct

Green Bay man charged with Child Abuse, strangulation and suffocation

GREEN BAY, WI  –  A Green Bay man has been formally charged in Brown County court for allegedly abusing his daughter.

According to court documents, Brave Cannon, 39, was charged Thursday with one count of child abuse – high probability/great harm, with another charge of strangulation and suffocation, as well as disorderly conduct.

The disorderly conduct charge is classified as a misdemeanor, while the other two are classified as felonies.

Documents state the incident happened just before 12 p.m. on July 15 on Elmore Street.

The victim told police on July 17 that she had had some friends that went over to her father’s home on the 15 to have pizza and hang out, and that her father hadn’t been home when they got there.

However, she then went to take a shower, and when she got out, her father was yelling that she had too many friends over, and told police she could smell alcohol on his breath, and knew he was drunk.

She told police Brave became angrier, and yelled more, after which she told everyone to leave and started packing up her things.

When she went back to the bathroom for her shoes, Brave allegedly pushed her very hard, and then grabbed her around her neck and squeezed.

She then said that it had hurt, she couldn’t talk and it was difficult to breathe.

Eventually, the victim was able to get out of that, but then said Brave put her in a headlock for around 30 seconds, and he threw her head against the wall.

The victim’s cousin then entered the house after hearing a commotion, and told Brave to let his daughter go or they would call the police, which he complied to.

Court records haven’t updated to show when Brave’s next court date is.
