RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- The death of 15-month-old Benjamin Seitz in a hot car on July 7 in Ridgefield continues to draw many questions, the News-Times.com is reporting.

No decision has been made on whether to charge his father, Kyle Seitz, who forgot the boy in the car while he worked on a day with temperatures that soared past 90 degrees, the News-Times noted. The boy's autopsy will not be released until Aug. 29, the News-Times said.

But other Connecticut parents who have left children in hot cars this summer have been quickly charged, the News-Times said.

Since the boy's death, his mother, Lindsey Rogers-Seitz, started the website called "The Gift of Ben" in memory of her son. She and her husband have advocated to raise awareness in the hope of preventing similar tragedies.

I agree with this. Why haven't we heard more about this? My guess is the parents have some connection to the police or medical community. A website dedicated to their son means NOTHING. The father left the small child all day in the car!
