Ariz. boy found dead in pit walked mile from home
PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. — Authorities say a 2-year-old Arizona boy walked about a mile barefoot through brush and over steep terrain into a mine pit, where he died.
Emmett Trap’s body was discovered around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday by search and rescue personnel, in the same pajama top and diaper he was wearing when he wandered from his home Monday night.
No foul play is suspected, but the area was being treated as a crime scene to ensure that a thorough investigation can be conducted to determine how he died.
