What kind of mother...and cop...does this?
Officer Cassie Barker left her 3-year-old daughter, Cheyenne, in her patrol car for hours, while she visited a male police officer Clark Ladner. Although the car was left running with the air conditioning on, the little girl later died at the hospital, according to the WREG.
Now, both Mississippi officers have been placed on administrative leave, after the 3-year-old died in a running car.
According to the Sun Herald, Barker previously lost custody of her daughter.
Hancock County Coroner Jim Faulk said the preliminary results of the child’s autopsy at the Mississippi Forensic Laboratory in Pearl should be available early this week. The news site also noted that when the child was found last Friday, temperatures in the area were in the low 90's.
