The Steamboat Pilot reported that Austin Davis may have been home alone for four days before he died, according to what Megan McKeon’s boyfriend told police.

In an affidavit, the boyfriend said he and McKeon spent four nights together and he did not recall her making any arrangements to care for Davis.

Originally police thought McKeon, 24, left her small cabin at a campground to go to work. They believed she left Wednesday, March 26 and returned Thursday morning, March 27.

McKeon told detectives she had left food, juice and a movie playing for her son, Austin Davis. She told detectives she had left him home alone on a regular basis, about 20 times before.
