3-year-old found dead in dryer, father says

3-year-old boy allegedly found dead in dryer

SHASTA COUNTY, VA (WTKR/CNN) - There haven't been any charges filed in the case of a 3-year-old found dead in a home two weeks ago.

His father, Chet Lloyd, told The Pilot that he found his son, Brantley Lloyd, had climbed out of his crib and into the clothes dryer.

Police said the boy was pronounced dead on the scene.

Brantley was reportedly living at the townhome with his father, who has since been evicted.

"He was crying sick all last night," the father said in a 911 call.

The medical examiner has not yet determined a cause of death, and police continue to investigate.

The boy's mother, Amanda Ray, said she doesn't understand why her child is dead, The Pilot reported. She wasn't living at the home at the time of the child's death.

"It doesn't make sense to me," Ray said. "Nothing is adding up. I don't understand how my baby was in a dryer. I don't understand how he died."

She said the boy died the day after his birthday.

A townhouse once filled with people and belongings sits vacant.

"They were obviously evicting somebody, just throwing everything into a dumpster," neighbor Nick Watt said.

Neighbors said they're surprised something like this could have happened in their neighborhood.

"That surprised the hell out of me," Watt said.

A GoFundMe was started to help with the cost of the boy's funeral.
