Justin Ross Harris, 33, who was recently in the news for the “accidental” death of his 22-month-old son, is now under intense scrutiny by the Cobb County Police as new information has come to light in the case. The baby died from heat exposure while remaining strapped in an SUV for over seven hours.
As the story originally broke we were told that Ross had “forgotten” about leaving his son in his SUV in 88 degree weather on a hot Atlanta day. Temperatures inside the vehicle topped out at around 120 degrees, experts say.
Considering it a case of extreme negligence police had charged Harris with 2nd Degree Cruelty to Children, which is a felony, and Felony Murder – which is a secondary charge where he is held accountable for unintentional murder because of a felony he committed.
Searches on Harris’ work computer have changed all that! According to Cobb County Police, Harris did research on the web to discover how long it would take an animal to die if it were trapped in a hot car prior to the death of his son.
