Dothan police are investigating the death of a two-year old boy found in an automobile parked at a home on Lace Drive off Prevatt Road in Dothan.

Castiel King, 2, was declared dead by Houston County Coroner Robert Byrd in the emergency room of Southeast Health at about 7:45 p.m. Friday.

Dothan Police Capt. Will Benny said preliminary investigation suggests the child was not forgotten in the car. “It looks like he got into the car himself,” Benny said.

Police are waiting on results of an autopsy and are collecting search warrants and video that may be available from nearby homes. The investigation is continuing.
