Baby Found Dead In Dishwasher 'Tragic Accident' A 13-year-old White County boy makes a shocking discovery. He finds his baby brother dead inside a running dishwasher. Detectives say right now they consider it a tragic accident, but they are still questioning family members. It's being described by detectives as one of the worst death scenes in their careers. Detectives say what they found inside the Romance mobile home on Snowbird Road was 18-month-old Clifton Kurk dead, covered in severe burns. Clark says Kurk's mother was at work and his father asleep when his 13-year-old brother made the gruesome discovery. Deputies believe the toddler had been inside the running dishwasher, set on high heat, for as long as 15 minutes, but no one is sure exactly how he got inside and closed the door.
