Latest car kid death

I have posted a bunch of these kid-in-car stories, but this has it all. Gay couple. Not married. Smoking dope. Watching TV. Foster kids. Kansas. Attempting an inter-racial adoption. Dead kid. Murder charge.

UK Daily Mail reports:
Crying child on Game of Thrones reminded foster dad high on drugs that he left baby girl in a sweltering car for two hours, say cops investigating her murder

Seth Jackson, 29, faces a first-degree murder charge in the July 24 death of his 10-month-old foster daughter Kadillak Poe Jones
Jackson reportedly called his partner, Payton Schroeder, to let him know he would be picking Kadillak up from the baby sitter after taking their 5-year-old adopted child to a doctor's appointment
Jackson told police that when he arrived home, he locked the car and went inside with his 5-year-old and pizza - but not Kadillak
Schroeder revealed to investigators that he and Jackson smoked marijuana that Jackson had earlier picked up that day
After watching one-and-a-half episodes of 'Game of Thrones,' Jackson remembered Kadillak was inside the car after hearing a child's cries on the HBO program
In addition to Kadillak, whom they were trying to adopt, Jackson and Schroeder had five other children in their care
Jackson's Facebook account lists him as a paraprofessional for the Wichita school district
I don't even know what a "paraprofessional" is. I would have thought that some red flags would have been raised, but maybe Kansas has changed since the last time I was there.
