Investigating toddler's death in Florence

FLORENCE, Ala. (WAFF) - Community leaders are joining Florence Police in the call for the community’s help after the death of a 3-year-old.

Investigators in Florence are asking the public for information about the death of Kaiden Garner.

Police said his death was made to look like a hot car death. Autopsy reports now show that Kaiden’s death was the result of trauma from a blunt object.

Investigators said that Garner was visiting his father when the two were seen in the area of the 1300 block of Carver Circle, the night of his death which is in District One.

We talked with District One representative Kaytrina Simmons, who is asking for the community to help get justice for Kaiden.

“Baby Kaiden didn’t deserve this horrific death. It happened in a community where we all loved and I know that someone has to know about that. We need justice for him. So I am making a plea for anybody in the community, any person or persons please come forward,” said Simmons.
