Alabama Parents Arrested After 3-Year-Old Died From Being Left in Car for 12 Hours

(The AEGIS Alliance) – FRANKLIN COUNTY, ALABAMA – A 3-year-old boy died while trapped inside a scorching hot car last weekend who may have previously been left inside the vehicle the previous night, Franklin County Sheriff Shannon Oliver said.

At around 4 p.m. on Sunday the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office received an emergency call regarding a 3-year-old in a car who was unresponsive in Hodges on Church Street. Medical personnel responded and the child was pronounced dead at the scene.

The boy had last been seen at around midnight he was placed into bed, but at about 3 p.m. when the parents woke up, they weren’t able to locate the child, and then discovered the child inside a car, according to a statement the parents told the sheriff’s department. The boy was left trapped inside the car between 12 and 15 hours.

“Given the high temperatures of the day and being shut up in a hot vehicle it is believed that the 3-year-old boy, Bentley Fowler succumbed to the high temperatures that would have elevated the temperature inside the vehicle,” Sheriff Oliver told WHNT.

The 3-year-old boy’s parents are Dakota Fowler, age 20, and Brandi Burks, age 21, who have been arrested and are facing manslaughter charges.

They two are being held in the Franklin County Jail with a $500,000 bond set for each of them.
