Baby Dies After Being Left in a Vehicle by Family Friend


How sad is it that people are constantly leaving their children in vehicles? It’s even worse, when you trust a friend with your child and that friend leaves them in a vehicle. According to the authorities,over the weekend a three month old baby boy was left in a car and sadly died.

According to the Phoenix Police, they arrived to the scene around 2 p.m. and that is where they found the baby boy in the car. The car was at the Abundant Life Church which is near 20th Street and Roeser Road. According to the authorities, the poor child was left alone in the car for around three hours.

Baby Left in Car Outside of Church, Dies


Early Saturday morning the baby’s mother had went to the church for an early choir practice, so she left the baby with a family friend. The family friend is a twenty-seven year old woman who is now a suspect n the baby’s death. The main suspect, arrived at the church around eleven o’clock that morning. She was reportedly running late that morning, however her and two other children exited the car and then went inside of the church.


After the choir practice the mother and a friend of hers realized that the baby was no where to be found. They then searched the church as well as the parking lot. Police say that the suspect is the one who checked the car and found the baby in “medical distress”.


That poor baby, it was around 95 to 97 degrees outside that Saturday. The baby died that next day, on Sunday afternoon. There’s no word on the exact charges yet. I can’t imagine the pain his family are feeling at this time.
