Law enforcement officials continue to investigate the death of 4-year-old Kaysen Neyland of Providence Village.

Aubrey Police Chief Charles Kreidler said no new information would be released at this time, but he confirmed that no charges have been filed so far in relation to the case.

“There’s not much more I can tell you at this point,” Kreidler said.

The Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office is conducting an autopsy. Melissa Willis, a medical transcriptionist for the office, said that nothing has been completed on the case so far, and the autopsy will likely take 90 days to be finalized.

No cause of death has been released.

Aubrey police said a family member found Kaysen locked inside a car parked in the driveway of his home, in the 10000 block of Franklin Drive, shortly before 5 p.m. Thursday.

The boy was unresponsive and had been inside the car for an unspecified amount of time. Kreidler declined to comment on whether the boy may have entered the vehicle without his family’s knowledge or been left inside.

Kaysen was subsequently airlifted to Children’s Medical Center Dallas, where he died at 8:58 a.m. Saturday.

Referencing a news release posted to Facebook on Saturday, Kreidler said that any conclusions drawn at this point should be considered pure speculation.

While the release mentions that various state and local agencies are assisting in the investigation, only the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services was mentioned by name. Kreidler did not release the names of other investigating agencies, claiming knowledge of their involvement might harm the investigation.
