Child Found Dead In Closet, Choked On Car Seat


It was inside a walk-in closet in a west Fort Worth home that police say they found an infant boy dead, lying in a portable car seat late Monday night.

By Tuesday, they'd started piecing together how little John Norris had died.

"It appears the bottom belt strap was not properly connected, wasn’t inserted, and the child slid down the seat," says Officer Brad Perez of FWPD. "The infant’s neck was caught between the car carrier chest buckle that was fastened, and the child appears to have suffocated by the means of the buckle and strap mechanism.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed Norris' death was accidental, caused by car seat belt strangulation.

Officer Perez says while the death itself appears to be a horrible accident, the circumstances around the death are being investigated.

Police say the babysitter, who has not been named, left the baby to sleep in a car seat inside the master bedroom closet of the home and discovered him dead two hours later.
