Two children, an infant girl and a toddler boy, were found dead in their car seats outside of their home, in Superior Arizona. The children were “cold to the touch” and had clearly been left in the car for several hours, according to officials, but the cause of death is still unknown.
Their mother, Brittany Velasquez, claimed she found them in the car and told police that they were not breathing and blood was flowing from their mouths. She claimed the children’s grandparents were supposed to take care of them, but the grandparents have denied those allegations. Brittany was charged with first-degree murder. Police have pieced together that she went to work and left the children in the vehicle around 9:30am Monday, and returned 14 hours later. Autopsies will be performed to determine the cause of death.
