(Polk County, WI) -- The Polk County District Attorney's office has ruled that it was a tragic accident when a toddler was found dead inside the trunk of a car just over a year ago. Authorities reported in July of 2013 that two-year-old Isaiah Theis went missing while playing with his brother at his home near Centuria Wisconsin. The young boy was found dead of excessive heat a day later inside the trunk of a nearby car. Investigators say they could not find intent from anyone involved. It was decided that Isaiah could have climbed inside the trunk and shut the latch himself.
