BIG SPRING -- Police are awaiting autopsy results from a 4-month-old Big Spring boy.

Isaiah Lee Valdez was found in a hot car Friday and was later pronounced dead at Scenic Mountain Medical Center.

Big Spring police Lt. Terry Chamness said police expect to present the case to the Howard County District Attorney's Office this week.

Police say the mother, Jamie Valdez, 20, had taken her other children safely inside the home and called 911 when she discovered Isaiah was still in the car. Police are unsure how long he'd been there.

It was 97 degrees in Big Spring early Friday morning.
