Ohio man is accused of intentionally leaving child in hot car resulting with death, faces several charges

After leaving his son inside of a hot car in Ohio when the temperature was 87 degrees, a father is facing charges in connection with the death of his one-year-old son.

According to a report that was published on Saturday by CBS News, Landon Parrot, 19, was the one who brought the unconscious infant to the Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital on Thursday.

After notifying law authorities of the event, Parrot allegedly gave investigators different accounts regarding the occurrence in a subsequent interview.

New Philadelphia Police Chief Michael Goodwin detailed the case in a statement on Friday:

As the investigation continued and evidence was collected, the father was confronted with the new information and confessed to detectives what had happened to his son.

The child passed away after being left in the car unattended for approximately 5 hours, with an outside temperature of 87 degrees. During the interview it appears that this was not a matter of forgetting the child but was a deliberate act so as the child would not be a disturbance while in the house.

Involuntary manslaughter, as well as two counts of harming minors, were among the charges that were brought against Parrot.

According to the conclusion reached by Goodwin, “He is currently being held in the Tuscarawas County Jail on a $250,000 bond.”

According to a report from Breitbart News from the time, a Texas mother was given a lengthy prison sentence in 2018 for leaving her two children inside a hot car to “teach them a lesson,” which ultimately ended in the deaths of her children.

“A jury in Parker County convicted Cynthia Marie Randolph, 25, guilty on two charges of reckless injury to a child in connection with the deaths of her daughter Juliet Ramirez, who was two years old, and her son Cavanaugh Ramirez, who was one year old. “The jury convicted her on all counts and handed down a sentence of twenty years,” the site reported.

According to the recommendations of the United States Department of Transportation, no adult should ever leave a child unattended inside of a vehicle.

“Under no circumstances should you ever leave a youngster unattended in a parked vehicle, regardless of whether the windows are down or the air conditioner is running. The organization said that the rate at which a child’s fever might increase is three to five times faster than that of an adult.
