3-year-old in Virginia found dead in a dryer

A 3-year-old boy from Virginia Beach is dead, and neighbors said he was found in the clothes dryer.

He reportedly lived with his father. Police said the child was pronounced dead at the home on August 7.

So far, no charges have been filed. According to a dispatch call, the child was "crying" and "sick" throughout the night. Since the incident, the father has been evicted from the home.

"They were just tossing everything into a dumpster and not really being delicate with anything," neighbor Nick Watt told WTKR-TV.

Police said this is an active death investigation. According to the medical examiner's office, the cause and manner of death are still pending.
