Funeral Wednesday for Toddler Found Dead in Trunk

Posted: Updated:


A toddler whose disappearance in Wisconsin drew scores of volunteers to help in a search for the boy will be memorialized in a public visitation.

The body of 2-year-old Isaiah Theis was found in the trunk of a car last week on his family's property near Centuria. A preliminary autopsy shows the toddler died from hyperthermia.

Family members say Isaiah's father is a mechanic and one of his customers stopped by Wednesday night to pick up his car. A sheriff's deputy asked to open the trunk, finding Isaiah's body inside. The family's pastor says that the boy likely climbed into the car trunk himself after grabbing the keys.

A visitation Tuesday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Trollhaugen ski resort in Dresser will be open to the public. A private funeral is scheduled Wednesday morning at Alliance Church of the Valley in St. Croix Falls.
