When Harris returned to his SUV, Cooper had been locked inside the car for about three hours. The Cobb County medical examiner has said it’s possible the young child was still alive at that time. This means if Harris left Cooper in his car by accident, it’s possible he could have saved his son’s life if he saw him inside the car during that lunchtime visit. Prosecutors have suggested that Harris returned to his car to make sure his son was already dead.
Previously, the jury saw videos of Harris being interviewd by lead detective Phil Stoddard at police headquarters. They also watched a video of Harris with his then-wife, Leanna Taylor, in the same interview room not long after Harris talked to Stoddard.
