Texas mom arrested after 2 children die in hot car during ‘lesson

WFAA reported that Cynthia Marie Randolph, 25, faces charges of first-degree felony counts of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury.

At about 12:15 p.m., Randolph said she had found her children playing inside her vehicle and ordered them to come out, police said.

The incident transpired on Friday, May 26th, when the dead bodies of 2-year-old Juliet and 16-month-old Cavanaugh were discovered in a locked auto parked in the driveway of her home outside of Fort Worth.

Police say during the investigation she admitted she left her kids in the vehicle to "teach them a lesson.".

The sheriff's office said Randolph told them she found her children playing inside her auto at about 12:15 p.m. and ordered her daughter out of the vehicle using profanity. Authorities say that the suspect admitted to locking the toddlers inside her vehicle on goal to teach them a lesson. During subsequent interviews with the police and with Texas Rangers, Randolph kept changing her story.

Investigator say Randolph finally confessed to first finding the kids playing in the auto.




The Texan woman, Cynthia Marie Randolph, 24, initially told investigators her two-year-old daughter and 16-month-old son locked themselves in the auto on May 26. Both children died of extreme heat exposure, according to authorities.

Bond has not been set for Randolph, who is being held at Park County Jail.

When she later discovered the kids, Randolph broke a auto window "to make it look like an accident", according to the television station.

The Texas mom is now in custody at Park County Jail.

Temperatures reached the mid-90s that day. The children were later identified by the Tarrant County medical examiner's office as Juliet Ramirez, 2, and Cavanaugh Ramirez, 16 months.

The incident happened May 26 when officials were called to the 200 block of Rambling Loop, west of Lake Weatherford, shortly after 4 p.m.
