Last week, an 18-month-old baby was found dead inside a car, suspected to have been killed by severe heat, in Arkansas.
The Police have identified the 18-month-old boy as the son of a Juvenile court judge, Wade Naramore.
Naramore is also a former Garland County deputy prosecutor.
The Hot Springs Police Department said it was conducting a criminal investigation.
It says the boy's death was likely due to 'excessive heat.'
A statement released on the family's behalf by a family friend Sunday night called the death a 'tragic accident.'
The Hot Springs Sentinel Record reported Monday that an official cause of death wouldn't be released until toxicology reports are ready in a few weeks.
Police Cpl. McCrary Means said Naramore and others have spoken with police about the death.
The local prosecutor has asked to recuse himself.
