I don't remember there being a third child mentioned in the original report a few weeks ago. Why were the racks out of the dishwasher? Why was the father asleep instead of watching TWO toddlers?

STILL sounds fishy to me.

I knew that there was no way that an 18 month old could have closed that door on himself. It doesn't bring him back, but it's good to know that it was only an accident, as opposed to the father or the 13 year old shutting him in there. The question does remain why were the racks out of the dishwasher, but I'm sure there is an explanation. My prayers remain with this family in this (still) horrible time.

I CAN BARELY GO TO THE BATHROOM WITH THEM UP AND WITH THE LIL ONE SLEEP I STILL CANT SLEEP CUZ THE ALMOST 5 YR OLD IS IN AND OUT PLAYIN ..SO HOW DID THE FATHER MANAGE TO SLEEP WITH 2 KIDS UNDER AND AT THE AGE 2??? I GUESS HE THOUGHT THE 13 YR WOULD WATCH THEM.BUT THEN THEIR LIES A PROB.. WHY LAY THAT RESPONSIBILITY ON A 13 YR?I STILL SAY CHARGES SHOULD BE BROUGHT SOMEHOW..

Yeah.. they never mentioned on this crappy website the 2 year old being in the house.. This is a situation i can see happeneing.. but the original article made you think other thoughts. They were probably playing and pulled the racks out, then climbed in.. toddlers love to do that stuff open close open close. Whatever happens.. its just awful what did happen.

I agree!!!!!! You know that child was screaming..so why didn't someone hear him???? Even the other children the eldest should have known something was wrong!

There is alot that is not adding up in this case.
