    Sayah Deal (1) died after being locked in a car and her father refused to let anyone break his new car's window or tow the car

    https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/...vegas-2140539/

    ?Long live Sayah,? a group of about 100 yelled through sobs as they released balloons Tuesday evening in honor of the 1-year-old girl, who died Monday afternoon after being locked in a car in central Las Vegas.

    The group set up a memorial with candles, flowers and stuffed animals as they cried and prayed for the family of Sayah Deal.

    The girl?s father, 27-year-old Sidney Deal, was arrested Monday on child abuse charges after police interviewed Deal?s brother and girlfriend, who tried to help in getting his daughter out of the car, according to an arrest report from the Metropolitan Police Department.

    Police were hailed around 3:30 p.m. at 1719 H St. where the report said Deal rejected their offers to break the window or call a tow truck or locksmith and said he just needed to call his brother. Deal?s brother told police Sidney Deal called and asked for their mother?s insurance information after locking his keys in the car but said the air conditioning was still running so the infant would be fine.

    When Deal?s brother arrived, he told police, ?He immediately took his shirt off, wrapped it around his knuckles and was ready to punch the window,? according to the report. ?Sidney stopped him and said he wanted to wait for a tow truck. Sidney insisted he not damage his new vehicle, stating he had just bought the car and did not have the money to repair a broken window.?

    Deal?s girlfriend told police that she spent 23 minutes on hold with a locksmith but that Deal didn?t like the price the locksmith gave so he denied the services.

    After about an hour, officers smashed a window and took the child out, but her body was in ?rigor mortis,? the arrest report said.

    According to the arrest report, Deal told police he thought the child was fine because the air conditioning was on but admitted she stopped moving on the floor of the backseat, which he believed to have meant she had gone to sleep.

    Police spokesman Larry Hadfield said Tuesday evening that the officers waited to break the window because Deal was adamant about protecting the car and they could see the child breathing.

    ?The dad said that the A/C was on and the kid was playing, and when the officers arrived, they saw that she was breathing? Hadfield said. ?But when the officers got concerned for the child?s well-being, they broke the window.?

    ?Tragic accident?

    Neighbors who said they were home on Monday and witnessed the ordeal had a different story.

    Shellie Ratliff, 64, lives in the building next door and watched Deal and police try to get into the car for about two hours before the window was broken. She said police even asked her for a clothes hanger to try to pop the lock.

    She said she didn?t know there was a baby in the car until she saw the body being pulled out.

    ?I don?t understand why police didn?t bust that window open first,? Ratliff said. ?You can always get another car, but you can?t get another life.?

    Darius Jones, 26, and sister Alaijzha Shields, 14, live next door to Deal?s girlfriend and said they?ve seen him with his daughter regularly for the past year. Jones said Deal has been nice and always seemed like a great father.

    He said he had never seen Deal without Sayah, either holding her in his arms or walking with her holding onto his finger. The two always had smiles on their faces and were laughing and playing, he said.

    ?I honestly believe it was a tragic accident,? Jones said. ?I can genuinely say that since that baby was small, he?s loved on her. I?ve never seen a bad time when he had that little girl in his possession.?

    Jones said that he wasn?t home Monday afternoon, but his sister and mother FaceTimed him and showed him what was going on. He said Deal was ?walking back and forth waiting for (officers) to break open a window. He even tried; they told him no,? he said.

    Shields, who said she was home when it happened, said officers wouldn?t let anyone break the car?s windows or help resuscitate the baby.

    ?They said that they couldn?t? break the window because they had to get permission from the sergeant, they had to make sure it was his car and stuff like that, but they sat out here for two or three hours walking around, looking inside the car,? Shields said. ?They looked inside, and I guess the baby wasn?t moving, so the officer just opened the window, they unlocked the doors and Sidney took out the baby.?

    Deal was being held at the Clark County Detention Center on $20,000 bail. He is expected to appear in court Thursday.

    WTH? The father needs to be locked in a hot car without the air conditioning. I would allow him to have the cops, the brother, and the girlfriend locked in there with him for company. That's more than that poor girl had. There wasn't one brain between the whole bunch.

    I tried hard to find his Facebook so I could tell all his stupid ass family and friends about what I thought about him, but alas, I couldn't find it.

    But seriously, everyone in this story should have the book thrown at them. I read somewhere that the car was a Nissan Altima. Not a Range Rover, Porsche, etc. Not that that would've been a good reason to not bust the damn window! God! I'm so angry at the stupidity and materialism in this story! This asshole didn't deserve a child in the first place!

    Really?!
    Well I hope all his friends and family turn their backs on him. At least the smart ones. I read that his mother is supporting him.
    This was in no way a tragic accident. This "accident" could've been 1,000,000,000,000,000x avoided if this poor baby girl had a parent that wasn't so materialistic.

    I believe if they come here and post, it's free game. However, make sure to keep in mind how they post before you respond....if they come in and act nice, I don't think a bunch of hate thrown at them is appropriate.

    I'll try my best, but I really don't tolerate idiots. I have many a strained relationship with my husband's family, because they're all everything on Facebook is a fact idiots.

    So he cared more about his car than his kid.
    Cool. Mandatory vasectomy coming up.

    How many of us would have just broke the window, charges be damned?

    A lot of people cared more about his car than his kid.
    I don't think you could be charged with breaking a window. At least, I hope the judge would throw that conviction out.

    I carry one of those window breaker/seat belt cutters in my car for an emergency. It is very easy to use and I would have used it. Besides, I need a vacation.

    So money was the problem? I've never had this happen but I know a bunch of companies that are willing to help especially for a fucking baby! years ago we got locked out of our house in the middle of winter (in Arkansas, so it wasn't completely freezing and we sat in a vehicle even though it wasn't on it kept the wind away) and didn't have the money for a few days to pay for it but a locksmith still came out and let us pay later. This was a fucking baby locked in a vehicle though! I don't think they'd be like "fuck off, you're on your own if you can't pay." fuck these people.

    Other than horrified, I don't know how to feel about this. How can there be two completely different stories here? One says the father wouldn't let anyone break the window, the other one says the police wouldn't let anyone break the window. Which is it? And wouldn't the police have the final say in a life and death situation? This is horrible.
    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.

    I am wondering if he/they didn't tell the locksmith that a baby was locked in the car. Around here, they will unlock for free if a child is in the car. I kind of thought that was standard practice for cars with all the hot car deaths of kids.

    After about an hour, officers smashed a window and took the child out, but her body was in ?rigor mortis,? the arrest report said.
    I don't know how long it takes for rigor to set in for an infant, but this seems hinkey. I have a horrible feeling she was dead when she was locked in the car.

    Ooh, could explain why the dad was delaying breaking the window.

    Still, cops should've broken it right away.

    It doesnt set in right away...Im with you thinking she was dead before being locked in the car.



    In the my experience the police officer asked if he could break the window and I said YES. The use a wedge and a pump thing to open the door a little bit, then they use a wire to try to push the unlock button.

    I think Puzz is on to something!

    Back in my LE days everyone carried a slim jim and we unlocked cars all the time. That was in the mid to late 90's and there were some computerized cars out there, but nothing like today's cars, so I guess that's why it's different. I would think that when a kid's life is on the line though, NO ONE would have to get permission to break a window. Heck, here in Florida I can legally break a window at any time if I see an animal left in a hot car....surely a kid's life is at least as valuable in lawmakers' minds?

    I've been reading comments on his Facebook. There's so many people constantly commenting that I can't find the comment, but the aunt of the poor dead baby says he killed her for spilling juice (in the car?).
    There's got to be a lot more to this story. Pieces are missing from this puzzle and he's hiding them in his pockets.
    Also, he's supposedly out on bail.
    Regardless of if she was already dead before being locked in the car, everyone that didn't help unlock the car needs to be severely punished. Heads need to roll!

    I'm with you on this. Rigor takes a while to kick in so either that baby was dead and put in there, or the baby had to have been in there for several hours. I hope they do a thorough autopsy.

    Yeah it's super weird, like if the air conditioning was actually on would the baby have even died?
    Honestly as a bystander I would've walked up and broken the shit lol. Idgaf.
    But I feel like there is a lot more going on here.


    I never try anything, I just do it. Wanna try me?
