But having breakfast with him, driving a few blocks and leaving him? I don't see how that is possible. My kids fall asleep fairly quickly on a car ride, but not that fast - and there's no way I'd forget about them.

He'd still be talking and moving and otherwise active.
Yes, if it was only a mile to work. That is why I was talking about toxicology results because, if he was not moving and talking.. something was wrong. He had to be "out-of-it" , if he was not talking or wanting to play in that short of distance of a mile? I do know toxicology reports will determine whether he was or not.. but I do find it odd that he was just lifeless ( or not talking) between Chick-a-fil and work. This scenario could make one think the baby had passed before the hot car death.

I think the murder charge is correct but he will have the chance to prove otherwise. I predict the charge stands.

Horrible tragedy to say the least.
Yeah, at the initial headline, I was inclined to cut the guy some slack because in reality, it IS very easy to get frazzled and forget stuff. I've driven away with my coffee still on the roof of my car many times.

However, after reading more details, I think the cops and the DA got this one right. Poor baby. What a miserable way to go.

We can talk about all the ways the 70's were better. I was born in 1975. But we can't go back to that. We also cannot legislate stupidity. At some point, humanity has become dumber, and our dependency on machines/computers becomes our downfall.

I wonder why the daycare didn't call one of the parents. If my daughter doesn't show up we get a call an hour or two later.

I wondered the same thing. Did the care center call him at work? He was clocked in.

Yikes!!! Totally agree Anna. This story is so sad, bizarre and getting more horrible as the days go on.

A question on my mind if he did in fact forget to drop the kid off at daycare why didnt he automatically drive to the daycare after work to pick up his son?

To me, this is one of the most damning facts. When you read about other parents who have accidentally left their child in the car, they state that they did think about their child throughout the day and when they did, they thought of their child safely spending the day at the daycare center. If that was the case, that is the very first place that he would have gone after work.

I have very, very little doubt that the case was not an accident, but I'm still having a difficult time believing that the mother was involved. Time will tell, I suppose.
