Another dead child found in a hot car, how many more of these tragedies will we see this summer?

This is a story I reported on Fox News Headlines 24/7 on SiriusXM 115.

It's happened again. A child found dead in a hot car.  This time in California.

It was a Rancho Cordova police officer's investigation that lead to the discovery of the little girl. The cop spotting a white Toyota Rav-4 parked the wrong way on the street near a park.  

The officer approaches a man and a woman near the vehicle - who say they own the car. The officer runs the man's name through the police computer - learning he had an outstanding warrant out of Arkansas.

It was then that cops searched the car and found the toddler under some blankets in the back seat. Unresponsive. Dead on the scene.

The Sacramento county coroner's office will determine the cause of death. Meanwhile, detectives are holding - and questioning, the man and the woman.

Temperatures in the Sacramento area were in the 90s yesterday.
