The father, 26-year-old Air Force reservist Louis Williams II, in turn told police about the confession.
Fowler has said she left the air conditioning running in the car, which police have also said is also their understanding. But the prosecutor has said the state actually has no evidence of that.
Defense attorney Charles Brant said in a previous hearing it’s clear the air conditioning is why the car’s battery died, leading Fowler to need help getting it jump started. She got it started with the help of a man at the salon.
She’s accused of concealing Skylar, who is believed to have been dead when the appointment was over, from the man before driving to Emory University Hospital.
Fowler remains in the county jail, bond denied.
