Harris viewed the video just five days before Cooper’s death, Stoddard said.
In January 2013, Harris’ then-wife, Leanna Taylor, emailed her husband a message that said, “Don’t be this dad,” Stoddard testified. The message contained warnings about leaving a child in a hot car. Harris received two emails from advocacy groups warning about the danger in April and May of 2014, the detective said.
Stoddard also testified that Harris previously conducted a Google search of what prison was really like. He found an article accessed by Harris that had “five things men should know.” Among those were: You have to join a gang to survive in prison; prisoners receive better medical car that most you do; and it’s unlikely you’ll get raped in prison.
