Father Is Out On Bail – He Left His Daughter In A Hot Car
Michael Thedford was arrested for causing the death of his 6-month-old daughter after he allegedly left her in a hot car. According to Thedford, he took his 5-year-old and 3-year-old children to daycare at about 9 a.m. on Tuesday. When he got back to his house, he allegedly forgot that his 6-year-old was still in the car and he went inside to take a nap.
When he woke up, he ran outside only to find her unresponsive and took her into the house.
Thedford then placed his daughter in the refrigerator in hopes that this would resuscitate her.
When the police arrived they found the baby dead in the kitchen. Thedford is an unemployed high school teacher and the tragedy happened while his wife was at work.
Thedford was arrested on a charge of manslaughter. He was released after posting a $20,000 bond.
