Heather Jensen arrested in deaths of two children left in up to 145 degree heat

In Colorado, we know the term "hypothermia," a condition denoting dangerously low body temperature. Less commonly heard in these parts is "hyperthermia" -- suffering from an abnormally high body temp. But a coroner has determined that William and Tyler Jensen, ages two and four, died of the latter after being left in a car with the heat blasting. And their mom, Heather Jensen, has been busted as a result. Details and the arrest affidavit below.

We first told you about the incident in a November post. As we reported, Heather, a resident of Palisade, on Colorado's Western Slope, called authorities at 6:31 p.m. on November 27 to report that William was unconscious and Tyler suffered from labored breathing that caused him to sputter as he tried to take in air.

Emergency personnel rushed to help, but they were too late to save William, who was pronounced dead at the scene. For his part, Tyler was still alive, but barely. He was initially rushed to Saint Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction before being transferred to Children's Hospital in Denver in critical condition. However, he died a few days later.

Heather initially told Mesa County Sheriff's Office deputies that she'd traveled with the kids to the Powderhorn ski resort, approximately a half-hour's drive from Palisade, and allowed the pair to play in the snow there. Afterward, she said she put them in their car seats and revved up her vehicle, a Toyota 4Runner. She then stepped outside to smoke a cigarette, at which point she was engaged in conversation by a friend who drove by. Ten minutes or so passed, at which point she climbed into the SUV and started for home, only to be stopped short by the sound of Tyler's gurgling.

She reacted by pulling over and checking on the boys -- and when she learned William wasn't breathing at all, she dialed 911. The operator sent out the alert, then instructed her on performing CPR, but to no avail.

Later, though, Heather changed key aspects of her tale, as documented in the aforementioned affidavit.

I can't believe the D.A. Pete hautzinger decided to file charges, they should have arrested that sad excuse for a mother as soon as they discovered the children dead! But then again the D.A. likes to let killers run loose!

I have that older type of 4runner. She must of left those children unattended for a long time. I left mine running blasting heat for 30 mins after the dead battery was jumped and it was not nearly that hot. Leaving children unattended in cars is stupid.

Slut, probably shouldn't have kids if you still wants to give blow jobs in cars. Then again our welfare society will take care of everything no need for personal responsibilties any longer. It wasn't her fault if there had been free daycare available she would have just dumped them there.

She should have to sit in a car for that long in that heat. What a waste of life.

@Melissa Bruce  ... yet in our devolutionary society, they tend to breed more ... a lot more.

Overbreeding is inversely proportional to intelligence.

@chrisestus What the fuck is wrong with you? Why did you feel the need to turn this tragedy into a political statement?

@Becky Long  ... it's time for Mandatory Government Licensing of Procreation.

Even prospective ADOPTIVE parents must pass BASIC COMPETENCY qualifications.

Why should breeders be any different?
