In the confusion on Thursday night’s fatal house fire, something was overlooked.
When family and friends arrived at the scene of the east-side fire on Friday morning, they made a startling discovery. Looking through the fire zone, they found what they believed to be a body part.
Detectives and a medical examiner returned to the scene on Friday afternoon and collected the additional evidence.
Meanwhile, the baby’s parents remain jailed. Charles Short, 25, and Tyler Terry, 23, are both charged with child abandonment. Both have $20,000 bonds.
Officials have not yet confirmed a cause of death.
