ATLANTA (CBS46) –
There are no words to sufficiently describe how Carolyn Jewell and others feel after hearing the disturbing news of a hot automobile death involving 1-year-old Skylar Fowler.
“It’s beyond troubling, it’s beyond disturbing,” Jewell said. “I imply it breaks my heart. You have a kid who will never grow up, never ever see life because of something so irresponsible. It’s heart breaking.”
Dijanelle Fowler, 25, deals with charges of 2nd degree murder, ruthlessness to kids and hiding a death after leaving her baby alone in a car for six hours while getting her hair done.
“I can’t envision leaving my kid in a cars and truck, or doing it intentionally. They’re just children, it’s not like they can look after themselves,” DeKalb County resident Teresa Fears said.
It took place outside a beauty salon in the Northlake Tower Festival Shopping Center off Lavista Roadway in Tucker on June 15, which so took place to be the most popular day of the month, inning accordance with CBS46 meteorologist Ella Dorsey.
Captain Jerry Lewis with the DeKalb County Cops Department is a father of four and had the uphill struggle of working the case.
“Those cases are tough to work. Anything including children is difficult to work,” Lewis said. “The vehicle was running and at some point in time the vehicle cut off, whether due to a mechanical concern or the battery simply gave out, and the cars and truck cut off and the child was in the cars and truck.”
After leaving her six hour hair visit, Fowler drove to Emory Medical facility and called 911, suffering her own medical problems. When cops arrived they treated her for a seizure and discovered her child deceased in the rear seats.
“You have to be smart about what you do often. If you have a kid, you take care of that kid first, then you get your hair done,” Jewell said.
Fowler is anticipated to appear in court on August 3.
