Man finds dead body of 3-year-old girl inside the back seat of his car
Man found the body of a 3-month-old baby girl inside a rear-view mirror of a car that was driven by a man in California, authorities said Friday.
The toddler was found in a white Nissan Altima, California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer Steve Anderson said.
The body of the girl was discovered on a side street in Santa Barbara, Anderson said in a news release.
The child’s mother had called police about the car that had been involved in an accident earlier this month, Anderson told the Los Angeles Times.
The girl’s mother, who is also a registered nurse, was taken to a hospital for evaluation, Anderson added.
The coroner’s office did not immediately provide a cause of death for the child.
The incident remains under investigation.
The name of the dead girl was not immediately released.
