Toddler Found Dead Inside Car in Herndon 

09 Jul 2008

HERNDON, Va. - Police are investigating after a 21-month-old boy was found dead inside an SUV on Monday evening in Fairfax County.

Investigators say Chased Harrison's body was discovered around 5 p.m. outside of Business Solutions, a construction consulting firm located at 580 Herndon Parkway in Herndon.  They say he was found inside an unattended SUV after a passerby called for help, and a preliminary investigation revealed he had been left there for several hours.

Authorities say an autopsy will be performed later this week to determine the child's exact cause of death. 

Employees of the business say the boy's father, Miles Harrison of Purcellville, works there and he was working on Monday.  They say he was overcome with grief after learning of the boy's death. 

Those who know Harrison told FOX 5 that he and his wife had just adopted Chased from Russia five months ago, and they don't have any other children.
