    Detectives interviewed the father and other witnesses Thursday.

    "I just saw him running to the fire truck, running around the fire truck trying to catch up to it. I saw a baby in his hands," said car wash employee, Jime Sanchez.

    Pedro Barinaeu with Garland Police told us investigators are trying to put together a timeline to determine how long the girl was in the car.

    "Any death is sad. A situation where a child is found deceased, that’s sad as well," said Barinaeu.
