Landon Parrott of New Philadelphia, Ohio confessed to deliberately leaving his 14-month-old son, Kyler, alone to slowly die in an unattended, scorching hot car on Thursday so that he could be rid of the child’s “disturbance while in the house.”

The New York Post reports that “The child passed away after being left in the car unattended for approximately 5 hours, with an outside temperature of 87 degrees,” according to New Philadelphia Police Chief Michael Goodwin.

19-year-old Landon had previously told authorities that he’d left his son alone while he made a brief restroom visit. Police showed Landon video footage of him leaving the child, alone, in the near 90 degree heat for hours. He left the boy at 8:30 am and returned at 1:50 pm. Over five hours, Kyler, sat strapped in the car and slowly dying.

According to Fox 8, the surveillance footage was taken from across the street of Parrott’s apartment. He put the child in the car in the morning and then retrieved the dead baby when he was to pick up his wife, who was working as he sat at home.

Police official Ty Norris told local news, “We estimate that would’ve made the interior of the car about 130 degrees and this child was in there strapped into a car seat with no fluids, no air conditioning, nothing.”
