 Family and friends are visiting the Saint Saveur home on northwest 5th Street in Delray Beach.

A neighbor, who did not want to be identified said, "A little baby, not even two yet. I'm really, really devastated."

Little Khayden will be remembered by neighbors as the kid who waved at them and loved to play.

"They always played out here under the tree.It was really good. I'm really sad."

But now Khayden is gone.

A neighbor, who did not want to be identified, says there was a commotion outside the home Saturday afternoon.

"I was home, my brother is the one who called police. I was home actually. By the time I got out here I saw the ambulance and heard screaming."

The police department says the case remains under investigation.
