Newly Released Warrants Provide More Insight In Hot Car Death

Posted: Updated:

NBC affiliate 11 Alive News/WXIA reports a new batch of search warrant applications released early Friday add more details to disturbing testimony from Thursday's probable cause hearing for Ross Harris.

The newly-released court documents include the following allegations, as set forward by Cobb Police:

  • Harris was interviewed shortly after his son was pronounced dead. "During the interview, Harris stated that leaving his son in a hot car was his biggest fear. According to Harris, he recently viewed a television show concerning child deaths in cars. He also stated that he researched the issue of deaths in cars on the internet."
  • Harris was questioned about Cooper's car seat. "Harris knew the specific make and model of the seat and what the weight limit was for the child to be seated in it. When the seat was inspected, the straps for the seat were set on the lowest level for a small child."
  • Harris told police he recently took over the finances for the family. "According to Harris, he has acquired some credit card debt, around $4,000 in order to acquire air line miles. Harris currently has outstanding student loans and car loans, for him and his wife."
  • "Harris also claimed that he was happily married. Nonetheless, evidence of inappropriate sexual communications with other women has been obtained."
  • Leanna Harris, the wife of Ross Harris and mother of Cooper, was also interviewed by Cobb Police. "She also made a similar statement that this was her worst fear. Investigators questioned her further about this. Leanna stated specifically that her fear was that her child would be left in a hot vehicle, not the fear of losing a child."
  • "Through the investigation Harris has made comments to family members regarding a life insurance policy and what they need to do in order to file it."
