OT:There's disparagement and then there's disparagement.Boy, three, is found dead in clothes dryer a day after his birthday by father who claimed he was up all night vomiting and having tantrums A three-year-old boy was found dead in a clothes dryer earlier this month after spending the night at his father's home. Brantley Lloyd, three, was found by his father Chet unresponsive in the appliance at his home in Virginia Beach, Virginia, on August 7, a day after his third birthday. The toddler had been throwing tantrums and throwing up the night before, according to his father. Chet has not been charged and the boy's cause of death remains a mystery. After Brantley died, his father was evicted from the property but it is not clear why.In an interview with the Virginian Pilot last week, Chet said he had no idea what happened. He claimed that on August 7, he woke up late because had spent the night awake with his son who he said was having tantrums.He wasn’t being himself. He was stubborn. He would cry for hours and hours,' he said.He added: 'His birthday went to crap.'Brantley had been living with his father for the last year. His mother, Amanda Ray, said she did not understand his death. 'It doesn’t make sense to me. Nothing is adding up. I don’t understand how my baby was in a dryer.'I don’t understand how he died,' she said. Authorities are yet to complete an autopsy on the child but police are still investigating the casehttp://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6083641/Boy-three-dead-clothes-dryer-day-birthday.html
John you beat me to it.Authorities in Virginia are investigating the death of a three-year-old boy whose father said he found his son's body in a clothes dryer earlier this month.Virginia Beach police spokeswoman Linda Kuehn on Wednesday confirmed that Brantley Lloyd's August 7 death is under investigation.Donna Price, a district administrator for the local medical examiner's office, said that agency's own probe into the cause and manner of the boy's death is ongoing.Brantley's father, Chet Lloyd, told The Virginian Pilot on Friday that he awoke at his townhouse that day to find his son inside the dryer.He said the toddler must have climbed out of his crib. Lloyd said Brantley was in a bad mood and throwing tantrums the day before, which was the boy's third birthday.The father said he slept late the next day and did not go to work because he had been up all night with his son, who was throwing up.Lloyd said he had been doing laundry the day beforehand and that the little boy must have climbed inside the dryer.The dad had spent the day with him alone despite telling Brantley's mother that they could meet up to celebrate their son's birthday. Instead, Chet said he took the toddler out for pizza then brought him home because he was tired. 'He wasn’t being himself. He was stubborn. He would cry for hours and hours,' he said. Lloyd said Brantley wasn't in his crib when he awoke and that the boy lacked a pulse when he was found. The man also said he called 911 at 5pm and tried to resuscitate his child.'He was unresponsive and covered in sweat and extremely hot,' Lloyd told the paper. 'I don't know if he panicked and couldn't get out. He had asthma.'Brantley's mother, Amanda Ray, told the newspaper she didn't live in the home and that the circumstances of her child's death make little sense.'Nothing is adding up,' she said. 'I don't understand how my baby was in a dryer. I don't understand how he died.'Ray said she had lived with Lloyd, Brantley and her two older children - a boy and a girl - before the relationship ended in early 2017.The Virginian-Pilot reported that Lloyd was evicted from his townhome in the 2300 block of Brigadoon Court a week after the boy's death. Chet Lloyd has not been charged with any crime in connection to Brantley's death. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6088239/Police-investigating-death-three-year-old-boy-inside-clothes-dryer.htmlThe man also said he called 911 at 5pm and tried to resuscitate his child.Who wakes up at 5pm or thereabouts?His behavior gives out red flags left right and centre as do his words.

He claimed that on August 7, he woke upTaniaAlthough this is not in quotation marks i would be interested to see if he lead with this when he called 911.
I agree John/He claimed that on August 7, he woke up late because had spent the night awake with his son who he said was having tantrums.He wasn’t being himself. He was stubborn. He would cry for hours and hours,' he said.He doesn't say he or the little boy went to sleep only that the father woke up.statements would reveal more.The problem he has is who turned the drier on if the boy got into the dryer himself?
His birthday went to crap (Child had a potty accident?)he had been doing laundry the day beforehand (Did he put the child in the washer?)covered in sweat and extremely hot (and then in the dryer?)cry for hours and hours (dehydrated?)
Had the poor boy simply suffocated in a closed dryer an accident might be possible. If the autopsy proves it was heated than its pretty much game over for the father...
New England Water Blog said...Had the poor boy simply suffocated in a closed dryer an accident might be possible.You make a very good point. Is it possible to close the door from the inside?
Update on my OT:Father, who says his three-year-old son died in a clothes dryer, is arrested for attacking the child's mother outside the funeral home - as she claims he's LYING about the boy's deathThe father of a three-year-old boy who was found dead in a clothes dryer has been arrested for assaulting the child's mother. Virginia man Chet Lloyd, 34, was arrested on Wednesday after he allegedly assaulted his ex-girlfriend Amanda Ray, who is the boy's mother, and broke her cellphone.He reportedly attacked her last week outside a funeral home where the two were making arrangements for their son Brantley Lloyd who was found dead in the clothes dryer on August 7.He was charged with domestic assault of a family member, damaging the victim's cellphone, as well as drug possession as he was found with one gram of cocaine. He was later released on bond.Could this be reason he was up all night (and not because his son was "in a bad mood, throwing tantrums and throwing up") given that cocaine is a stimulant .Ray confirmed to AP that Lloyd assaulted her outside the funeral home. A funeral for three-year-old Brantley was held on Saturday which Lloyd did not attend, according to The Virginia Pilot. The investigation into Brantley's death continues after his father claims the child must have climbed out of his crib and entered the machine.The day before was the child's birthday and the father said Brantley was in a bad mood, throwing tantrums.Lloyd said he slept late the following day and didn't go to work after staying up all night with his son, who was throwing up. When he woke up he found the child unresponsive.Lloyd said he had been doing laundry the day beforehand and that the little boy must have climbed inside the dryer.'He was unresponsive and covered in sweat and extremely hot,' Lloyd told The Virginia Pilot. 'I don't know if he panicked and couldn't get out. He had asthma.The child's mother Amanda Ray doesn't live at the home and says that her ex's claims make little sense. 'Nothing is adding up,' she said to ABC. 'I don't understand how my baby was in a dryer. I don't understand how he died.'Ray said she lived with Lloyd, Brantley and her two other children in his home before the relationship ended in early 2017. Lloyd was evicted from his townhome a week after the boy's death. An autopsy has been completed but the cause and manner of death are yet to be determined, according to Donna Price, regional administrator for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Norfolk.Virginia Beach Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kathy Hieatt said Lloyd was booked around 8.30pm Wednesday and released on bond two hours later. He is scheduled to appear in court on September 4. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6092653/Father-dead-son-3-charged-assaulting-boys-mom.html
Hina Clause?'He was unresponsive and covered in sweat and extremely hot,' Lloyd told The Virginia Pilot. 'I don't know if he panicked and couldn't get out. He had asthma.In an open statement we highlight the words "so, since, therefore, because, to" and so on showing a high level of sensitivity. The subject anticipates being asked why was he "unresponsive and covered in sweat and extremely hot" and does he have "asthma"?. Where there are no words, "so, since, therefore, because, to" but the whole sentence is to explain why etc where no explanation is needed, it, too, is highly sensitive. We would expect him "panic" and to be "extremely hot and sweaty" if he was locked inside a dryer, he should not have to explain, that is, unless, he has been asked to.At the very least he will be (or should be) charged with neglect.
I have just watched the Sacha Baron Cohen "interview" with O.J. Simpson and it seems his statements have gotten much stronger over the years in terms of making direct denials. Is this a case of someone believing his own lies or simply enough practice repeating the denials so many times, it becomes second nature?
