The body of the body was found by police officers Friday morning during a traffic stop in Mound, Minnesota.
Officers were called to a suspicious vehicle driving over its edge and with a broken window around 7 a.m. local time, Orono Police Chief Correy Farniok said Friday.
While talking to the woman driving the car, they noticed blood.
Farniok said “other materials” were also found in the car before the boy’s body was located in the trunk.
Police are investigating Hart’s death as a domestic incident, according to CBS Minnesota.
Hart’s mother was recently awarded full custody of the boy, according to court records obtained by the outlet.
She was arrested Friday and remains in custody.
Another person was also arrested in an apartment as the investigation continued Friday, Farniok said.
There are multiple scenes associated with this crime, including a nearby Shell gas station.
Farniok also said cops don’t believe there is a threat to the public.
“You’re kind of surprised, and our hearts go out to the victims in this, as well as the officers, the first responders,” Farniok said.
Hart was in kindergarten at Shirley Hills Elementary School, according to Westonka Public Schools Superintendent Kevin Borg.
“It is horrible and difficult to process a tragedy of this magnitude, especially in our tight-knit community,” Borg said.
“My thoughts and prayers are with all those who are grieving this profound loss.”
