    Authorities tell The Tampa Tribune that Kyrese's parents had driven separately to drop off the boy and two other children at a babysitter's house before the funeral in Palmetto.

    The sheriff's office says both parents went to the funeral thinking that all three children were with the babysitter. The boy was discovered inside one of their cars as they were leaving the funeral.

    An autopsy will be performed Monday. No charges have been filed.
