Police still investigating child’s death

Jun 23, 2011 6:43:00 PM - thestate.com
The Columbia police department is still investigating the Father’s Day death of a 9-month-old baby in a car and has made no decision on whether to press charges against anyone, a spokeswoman said Thursday.

The baby, Jayden Davis, of Charbonneau Apartments, died of heat stroke and elevated body temperatures after being left in a closed car in a parking lot on a sunny day four about four hours with temperatures in the 90s, according to Richland County coroner Gary Watts.

The boy’s father, who has not been identified, is the person who left Jayden in the car Sunday morning, Columbia police chief Randy Scott said.

Scott said the father had dropped the mother off at work Sunday morning. At the time, the baby was in a car seat in the rear of the car, a 2008 Mercury Milan sedan. The car seat was facing backwards. The father drove back to the family’s apartment, got out and went inside, leaving the baby in the car, Scott said.
