Principal, She told investigators she forgot to drop off Cecilia with a baby sitter after stopping to buy donuts for teachers that morning. And continued her work day until someone leaving at 4 spotted th child in the 105+ degree car, in which she had died.

My question is. Why didn't the babysitter call- if the baby should have been there, especially because it was the moms first day back to work (1st day of school). Wouldn't she find it odd that the baby hadn't been dropped off by mid morning? Did she try to call the parents to check if they were ok or if the baby was still coming.
