His father was asleep at the time of the incident, and woke up believing the boy was missing.

The father and neighbors found the boy's body inside of the car around 4:40 p.m. on August 26. He was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

Rock Hill Police along with SLED investigated the death, and concluded that it doesn't appear that Adams Jr. was left in the car by his father, and that his death was indeed an accident.
