Texas Boy, 2, Dies after Found In Hot Car

ANNA, Texas (AP) — Investigators say a 2-year-old North Texas boy has died after being discovered in a hot car and his father could face upgraded charges.

The Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office on Wednesday had not yet released a cause of death for Jordan Cartee of Anna.

Jordan was found unconscious Sept. 12 in a vehicle outside his home as temperatures were in the 90s. Jordan died Monday afternoon at a Dallas hospital.

Collin County jail records show 32-year-old Joshua Cartee of Anna was being held Wednesday on a charge of injury to a child. Online jail records don’t list an attorney for Cartee, who was booked Friday with bond set at $100,000.

Sheriff’s Lt. John Norton says no decision has been made on whether to upgrade the charge against the father.
