    So your assessment is that the child was murdered? Is that what you really believe?

    How could you forget your baby for 6 hours and then cover her up when asking someone to help start your car? And then go to hospital for herself, not her baby? No, this woman was more than negligent-

    Police said they don’t believe Fowler intended to harm the child. She left the air conditioning running, but when she finally emerged the car had shut off, according to DeKalb police.

    IN DEPTH: Mom charged with murder after baby dies in hot car in DeKalb

    MORE: No bond for mom charged in baby’s DeKalb hot car death

    The warrants suggest the case against Fowler was partly built by security camera footage.

    Fowler had a hair appointment in the Northlake Tower Festival Shopping Center in the Tucker area at 10 a.m. Footage shows her enter at 10:06 a.m. and later emerge at 4 p.m., the warrants say.

    Witnesses confirmed she never left the salon.

    In the parking lot, Fowler couldn’t start the car and got a man at the hair dresser’s to assist.

    The good Samaritan didn’t see the baby because, police believe, Fowler covered her up with clothes that were in the car or hid her in some other way.
    “Between 4 and 4:54 (p.m.) she texted the child’s godfather that she was going to go to an urgent care for headaches,” a detective wrote. “(Fowler) also Googled about signs of seizures.”

    She arrived at Emory at 4:54 p.m., soon dialing 911.

    Police allege Fowler didn’t mention the child and instead said that she herself was “having a seizure of some kind.”

    When officers arrived, Skylar was unresponsive in the back seat.

    The medical examiner’s office believes she had been dead for “some period of time,” the detective wrote.

    Can it be both ways? Understand how it happened, condemning the parents without calling them murderers?

    that is all I am saying. They made a grievous mistake, they were not out to kill their child. They made a mistake that I could easily see myself making, but when I had kids I was VERY careful not to make that mistake. I had to have reminders especially if the kids were sleeping.

    I always got them out of the car no matter how short of time. It was a major PITA but I did it anyway because I didn't ever want to forget. These parents learned a hard lesson and will pay for the rest of their lives.

    Her trying to cover it up doesn't make it murder, but the punishment should be more sever.

    never called them murders - you keep doing that for me. i just think they're so very irresponsible and question their ability to parent. last year the number of deaths tripled. what the HELL is more important than your kids?

    you sound like your priorities were in order - great. theirs should be also.

    The solution is real easy: Keep the engine running with heating or air conditioning on while you are doing your business, if you need to leave a child or a pet in your vehicle for a short time.

    Leave the vehicle locked with a second set of keys in your pocket.
