I just don't know what to say about this...

Sources: Father knew toddler was in SUV



By Alexis Stevens

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Police have information that the father of a 22-month-old toddler found dead in the back of an SUV Wednesday knew the child had been left in the vehicle, according to Channel 2 Action News. Sources familiar with the investigation declined to release additional details to Channel 2, the station reported late Tuesday afternoon.

That information differs from Justin Ross Harris’ initial statements to Cobb County police, including that he mistakenly left his son in his carseat while he went to work last week. Harris, 33, of Marietta, said he only realized the boy, Cooper Mills Harris, was in the backseat when he was driving away from his job at a Home Depot corporate office, police said at the scene.

On Wednesday afternoon, Cooper was pronounced dead in the parking lot of an Akers Mill Road shopping center, where Harris drove after noticing his son still strapped in to his carseat.

Earlier Tuesday, Cobb County police declined to discuss whether the investigation has expanded beyond the toddler’s father. But police say the investigation into Cooper’s death continues to evolve, and is far from over.
“This is a very active, very fluid investigation,” Officer Mike Bowman told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Tuesday. “Our detectives have worked tirelessly to resolve the leads in this case. They are doing due diligence.”

1. Well, I guess that explains why he got hit with a murder charge

instead of manslaughter. I'd thought they were being a bit harsh on him, but if he intentionally left the kid in there, then I guess murder is the right charge after all.

3. They have to know something we don't.

That's a reasonably professional police department, unless one is wearing a hoodie and carrying Skittles. It is a very red county.

9. Update from your link: "Warrant: Father went to SUV at lunchtime"

UPDATE: An updated arrest warrant offers new details into the hours leading up to the death of a 22-month old toddler inside his father’s SUV. The father and son stopped for breakfast on the way to work and the father returned to the SUV during the day, something he may not have told police.
...
“During lunch said accused did access the same vehicle through the driver’s side door to place an object into the vehicle,” the warrant states. “Said accused then closed the door and left the car, re-entering his place of business.”
