Boy, 3, Found Dead in Car Outside Chandler Home
Chandler police are investigating the death of a 3-year-old boy found dead in his mother's car outside of his home this afternoon.
Because the deceased in this case is not of the canine variety, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office decided to sit this one out.
Chandler police Detective David Ramer tells New Times that the boy's 24-year-old mother was inside her home at 2253 West Boston Street in Chandler when she couldn't find her son.
Carpenter searched the house and checked with neighbors but couldn't find the boy and called police.
