1-Year-Old Dies In Hot Car While Mother Gets Her Hair Done
A 25-year-old Georgia woman was charged with second-degree murder, concealing a death and second-degree cruelty in the death of her 1-year-old daughter.
According to reports, Dijanelle Etta Fowler called 911 on June 15 from the parking deck of Emory Hospital to report a medical emergency. Responders found her child, baby Skylar, dead in the back seat. Fowler, however, was treated for seizure-like symptoms.
DeKalb County investigators say Fowler drove around for hours with her dead child in the backseat. It was also discovered that earlier in the day she went to a hair appointment at the Tucker Salon that listed six hours. When she left the salon she came out to find Skylar had suffocated. Instead of calling 911, investigators said she asked someone to help her jump her car.
