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

Remembering Carmen To Stop Child Abuse

Carmen Ellis Memorial Ride – Stop Child Abuse

Annual motorcycle ride brings
awareness about Child Abuse, Safety

INDIANAPOLIS, IN  –  The grandmother of a fatal child abuse victim hopes motorcyclists and even non-riders will help raise awareness about keeping kids safe.

Although 3-year-old Carmen Ellis is no longer alive, her memory lives on thanks to her family, friends and even people who never had to a chance to meet her.

“She was just the sweetest little girl and just very funny,” Tina Smith said.

Tina lights up talking about her late granddaughter Carmen.  She and her husband, Lorin Smith who is also a motorcyclist, are organizing another annual fundraiser called the Carmen Ellis Memorial Ride, which started eight years ago following Carmen’s death.

“She died August 22, 2012, killed because of child abuse by my daughter’s boyfriend,” said Tina.

Every year since 2012, to remember Carmen, Tina has raised money for child abuse charity.

The Smiths have teamed up with local VFWs, which serves as some of the stops for the memorial ride.  This year the fundraiser will also include kicking off with a breakfast where participants can make donations.  The breakfast takes place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. with an all-you-can-eat buffet with a $7.75 donation.  The memorial ride starts at The American Legion Post 495 located at 8725 East 38th St., in Indianapolis.  The donation is $20 per motorcycle rider and just $5 per passenger. Kickstands up at 10:30 am.

The couple also plans to do a 50/50 drawing, auctions and raffles.  Tina and Lorin don’t usually set a number of riders for each event but it has grown each year just by word of mouth.  This year’s event will take place after missing last year.

The memorial ride happened last year but without Tina and Lorin.  They both lost their lower left legs in crash with a distracted driver and spent months in physical therapy.  So now they’re inviting everyone to be in Carmen’s Ride.

“You can be on a motorcycle, on a slingshot, a car, a truck or a van,” Tina said.  “As long as it’s roadworthy you can be there with us.”

This year the memorial ride is even more special because it’s on Aug. 22, which is the same date Carmen received her heavenly wings.

Whether you do Carmen’s Ride or not Tina wants everyone to help with stopping child abuse.

“The child should come first,” Tina said. “They are so dependent on us, the adults, just adults to help them.”

Killer Takes Children Unattended In Vehicles

On Monday, July 20, 2020, the 11th Child this year was taken in Arkansas while playing in a vehicle.  Her 15-month-old sister remains in critical condition.

Two days earlier, on Saturday July 18, 2020, the killer was there in Texas when the little boy climbed into the vehicle and started playing.  There were no eye witnesses when the unseen stalker took the 10th Child this year.

In Kentucky, Saturday July 11, as the little girl played in the vehicle, someone had to see and know the danger, even before the 9th Child was taken.

Every one of the Children on this list lost their lives due to HEAT STROKE.

How many Children were VICTIMIZED by Child Abuse, Physical Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Mental Abuse, and/or Trafficking just this year?

Our Children are easy prey when left unsupervised and many parents mistakenly believe their Children are safe indoors.

The internet is a cesspool of perverts and pedophiles doing everything possible to lure Children to them.

Nothing can replace Parental Supervision and Quality TimeMissed Quality Time is gone forever, and can never be made-upGood memories are easy to make and free for the making during Quality Time.

When children grow up in safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments, they learn empathy, impulse control, anger management and problem-solvingall skills that protect against violence.

Disney+ Now Streaming F-Word

Disney Remove Profanity from Hamilton

Parents Tell Disney+ to Remove F-Word
in New Movie

The film Hamilton is now streaming on Disney+, and the movie includes another first for the streaming company – the use of the f-word along with other excessive profanity.

Hamilton, the Broadway musical turned film, was released July 3 on Disney+ and is rated PG-13.

According to a June 24 press release from Parent Television Council (PTC), Hamilton creator “Lin-Manuel Miranda confirmed that two of three “f-words” were dropped from the streaming version in order to reach the broadest audience.

The Motion Picture Association allows one ‘f-word’ to be used in PG-13-rated films…  But Disney’s decision to allow even one ‘f-word’ to be heard on its Disney+ platform – a platform that bears Walt Disney’s name and that is marketed directly and primarily to millions of families with children – is shameful.”

Once again Disney is not protecting its young audiences.  Also, Disney continues to be uncooperative with the Family Movie Act – legislation that would allow parents to use technology to filter and block inappropriate and explicit content in films.

Disney needs to highly reconsider the language it includes in its movies.  Shame on Disney+ for allowing even one f-bomb, along with other multiple uses of profanity, to remain in the film Hamilton It’s just too much and totally unnecessary on a streaming service for family and children.

TAKE ACTION

Sign our petition to Disney CEO Bob Chapek urging him to remove the f-word from the film ‘Hamilton’ immediatelyLet him know your family will not be watching this movie because dropping the f-bomb and using inappropriate language goes against your beliefs and values that you teach your children.

TAKE ACTION NOW!

The owner of a Manhattan, Kansas restaurant on Tuesday was bound over for trial in Riley County District Court on 26 counts of child sex abuse.

Owner of Manhattan, Kansas restaurant bound over on 26 child sex counts

MANHATTAN, KANSAS  –  The longtime owner of a Manhattan restaurant has been bound over on 26 charges of sexual abuse against minors, KMAN Radio reports.

Arraignment is scheduled for July in Riley County District Court for Robert Iacobellis, 62, the owner of Bob’s Diner.

Charges range from aggravated indecent liberties to rape and sodomy.

KMAN reports that 24 of the counts carry a life sentence.

During a preliminary hearing Tuesday in Riley County District Court, three victims testified that Iacobellis touched, fondled or sexually assaulted them on numerous occasions, sometimes when they were as young as 7 years old, KMAN reports.

Iacobellis will be tried on 16 counts against the first victim, including charges of rape and sodomy;  six counts of aggravated indecent liberties against a second victim; and four counts against a third victim.

During testimony at Tuesday’s preliminary hearing, one of the victims alleged the abuse began when her mother — who is a former weekend employee at Bob’s Diner — had Iacobellis watch her while she went to work.  That victim alleged the abuse continued until January 2019.

Judge William Malcolm found enough probable cause from the testimony to proceed to trial.

Iacobellis was arrested in August 2019.  An amended complaint listed 130 total charges against the three alleged victims.

Iacobellis will be arraigned at 2:30 p.m. July 6 with Judge Kendra Lewison presiding.
According to KMAN, Iacobellis remains jailed on a $400,000 bond.
