Brycen and Brayden, may you both rest in peace. One South Carolina father, Brycen and Brayden McDaniel, would have to live the rest of his life with the knowledge that he was the one responsible for the murder of his two twin kids. On September 1, 2021, the boys tragically passed away as a result of their father’s forgetfulness in dropping them off at the day care facility. As a result, they were forced to spend a total of nine hours cooped up inside the SUV. According to the reports, the temperature inside the car reached as high as 120 degrees Fahrenheit (49 degrees Celsius).
The individual, who was claimed to have been going through a really difficult time lately, drove to a manufacturing business after parking his vehicle and immediately reported for job.
After their father forgets to drop them off at daycare, the twins are discovered dead in the backseat of the vehicle.
After he finished his work, he drove to the Sunshine House Early Learning Academy to pick up the twins, but when he got there, the staff informed him that they weren’t there since their parents hadn’t brought them in that day.
The worried father sprinted to his vehicle, but by the time he arrived, it was much too late. Both of the babies, who were 20 months old, had passed away. Hyperthermia, often known as heat stroke, was the cause of their death. After speaking with the father, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott referred to the interrogation as “one of the most painful” in his 46 years of career as a law enforcement official. “He had no intention of doing what he did. Oh, God, I’m sure he didn’t intend to do that. “He has to live with it for the rest of his life,” Lott stated while speaking to the media during a news conference. “The father was under a great deal of hard strain at work that day, which really caused him to have his mind on something else.” He was certain in his own mind that he had delivered the two children to the childcare center.
Coroner Naida Rutherford shared some advice with the audience in the hopes of discouraging parents from ever leaving their children alone in a car. They could put a toy, a bag, or some diapers on the front seat, along with the rest of the items. According to WMBF, Rutherford was quoted as saying, “We encourage each parent to check in the backseat because there are so many stresses associated with Covid 19 and the changing environment.” “Check to see that the youngsters have been dropped off. We strongly encourage all child care centers and infant centers to contact the parents of a kid who does not show up for their scheduled appointment. It has the potential to save a life.”
In the obituary for the two angels of beauty, it was said that “They were fun-loving young boys, with grins that could light up a whole room.” They had a great time giggling, exchanging wet kisses, singing, watching their father and grandfather perform jazzy melodies on the saxophone, and dancing to music by Frankie Beverly and Maze as well as Earth, Wind, and Fire. They certainly had experience and maturity much above their years. There have been no formal accusations brought against the father.
Brycen and Brayden, may you both rest in peace. You will not be forgotten under any circumstances.
