Copied from the Indianapolis star newspaper Found in icy car, 3 boys are recovering Father is arrested, accused of leaving kids in stranded vehicle for nearly 6 hours By Paul Bird firstname.lastname@example.org December 20, 2005 GREENWOOD, Ind. -- Three boys, including a 3-month-old, were recovering Monday from exposure after being left alone in an icy car without heat for almost six hours, police said. The temperature was 22 degrees when police found the boys at 6:39 a.m. Sunday in their father's car behind a business in the 1600 block of U.S. 31 South. Police said the inside of the car's windows had a coating of frost. Their father, Gary W. Willhoite Jr., 27, Greenwood, was arrested on three preliminary charges of neglect of a dependent and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was held Monday in the Johnson County Jail on $10,000 bail. The baby's body temperature was 95 degrees, almost 4 degrees below normal, when the boy arrived at St. Francis Hospital South Campus, said Matthew Fillenwarth, investigations commander with the Greenwood Police Department. The detective said the baby wore a sleeper. The older boys, ages 4 and 6, were snuggled together and covered with a thin blanket, police said. One boy wore shorts and a T-shirt. The other wore a light coat and pajama bottoms. The boys told police they were afraid to leave the baby. "I am surprised the children were found alive," Fillenwarth said. "He stranded the car in snow and then left his children to die." Police and firefighters began searching about 2 a.m. Sunday after the children's mother, Michelle K. Johnson, 27, said Willhoite arrived home after 1 a.m. without the boys. Johnson told police she had left the children with Willhoite so she could attend a family gathering. Willhoite initially said he did not know where the children were and thought they were with Johnson. Later, Fillenwarth said, Willhoite told police he could not remember what happened because he had drunk alcohol while taking prescriptions. Police later learned that after his car became stuck in snow, Willhoite walked to a gas station near Stop 18 Road and U.S. 31 and called his father about 1 a.m. for a ride home, Fillenwarth said.
