                LAWRENCE, KS (KCTV) -- It was just about 5 p.m. Sunday night when someone saw a baby boy sitting in the car in front of a family member’s home at Easy Living Mobile Home Park in Lawrence. Monday night, police still aren’t saying whether they think this was an accident or something even worse.

                Lawrence police held a press conference Monday afternoon, but answered very few additional questions related to the death of that boy.

                2-year-old Devonte Turner was staying with relatives in the mobile home park and for reasons still unknown, was left inside a sweltering car.
