Police found Edwards' purse in the vehicle and found her nearly an hour later at an Aspen clothing store, the Times reported. According to police, Edwards was intoxicated and "making suicidal statements," according to the affidavit.
At the Pitkin County Jail, Edwards allegedly threatened jail staff, child protective services counselors and other personnel, according to court records. According to the affidavit, Edwards was apologetic about her daughter.
“I didn’t mean to hurt my baby,” Edwards said. “I forgot about her in the car. I can’t believe I did this. I could have killed her.”
Edwards has two other children, ages 6 and 11, KMGH reported.
