Visitation Tuesday afternoon for Wisconsin 2-year-old

Author:

A public visitation will be held for 2-year-old Isaiah Theis, whose body was found in a car trunk on his family's rural property in western Wisconsin last week.

The visitation will be 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Trollhaugen Ski Resort in Dresser, Wis., WCCO reports. Another visitation will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Alliance Church of the Valley in St. Croix Falls before the toddler is laid to rest at a private funeral, WCCO says.

The boy's body was discovered July 17 after a day-long search that involved more than 2,000 volunteers who swarmed the family property near Centuria, Wis., after the boy wandered away. The keys to the locked car in which he was found were discovered near the boy's body in the trunk.

Family members believe the 2-year-old took the keys from his father’s mechanic shop, opened the trunk and climbed inside, the family pastor said.

A preliminary autopsy indicated the boy died of probable hyperthermia – exposure to heat.

A memorial fund has been established for the family.
