GREENFIELD, Ind. -

A four-month-old baby girl was found dead in a car in a Greenfield neighborhood Saturday on a day when the temperature hit a record 105 degrees in nearby Indianapolis.
 
The baby's father, 18-year-old Joshua Stryzinski, has been arrested and is being held at the Hancock County jail Saturday night.

Greenfield Police Chief John Jester says the baby's death is still under investigation, but says it appears she had been left in the car for "an extended period of time." He says police were called to the scene about 3:35 p.m. He says the baby was brought to Hancock Regional Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
 
He says police are still taking statements from those involved. He said he could not provide any further information immediately because of the ongoing investigation.
 
Jester says the child's name was being withheld because there were still some family members who had not been notified.
