Disturbing details have emerged as to why that 11 month old baby was left home alone by his uncle to die in a fire in a rural home in Tower, Minnesota. Charges filed by authorities allege he left to buy drugs. When he returned and saw the fire department and what was happening, he turned around and headed to Benchwarmers Bar and Grill. He then stole a Jeep from nearby, abandoned it and ran into a woods and swamp. He was later spotted coming out of the woods and was taken into custody.
The child identified as Bentley Joe Lewis Koski, was left in his second floor crib alone. He was pronounced dead, with the medical examiner saying he had soot in his esophagus, stomach, and airways.
