OH police identified the two-year-old toddler found frozen on the porch of her Akron home on Friday, Feb. 2, as Wynter Parker.

According to the child's mother, who hasn't been publicly named since she hasn't been charged in connection with the death, told police that she was out with her other child, a 4-year-old, while Wynter's father was supposed to be watching her at home.

She knew only that the toddler was not breathing after finding her on Friday on the family's front porch in Akron, Ohio, where temperatures had been hovering around -9.5C. The temperature in Akron ranged from 12 to 19 degrees on Friday.

The dad fell asleep since he works night shifts.

No charges have been filed, but an investigation is continuing.

The Summit County medical examiner's office said it was performing an autopsy Monday afternoon to determine the cause of death.

Wynter's mother told a 911 dispatcher that she had no idea how long the girl had been outside.

The Washington Post reports that the little girl was identified as 2-year-old Wynter Parker, who apparently wandered outdoors without a coat or warm clothing on.
