Suspicions Raised Regarding The Role Of Mother In Toddler's SUV Death

Suspicions have now arisen regarding the mother of a toddler who died after being left in a hot SUV for hours. Cooper Harris died tragically after he was left alone in the car during the day while his father was in work.

Leanna Harris, mother of Cooper, has not been charged with any crime as of yet but her behaviour is being considered as suspicious.


According to the Daily Mail, despite shock allegations at her husband's hearing on Thursday, Harris expressed very little emotion. Ms. Harris heard in the hearing that he her husband had essentially been living a double life and had apparently sexted up to 6 women on the day of his son's death.

When Ms. Harris was informed that her son had not been dropped off at the nursery, she stated: "Ross must have left him in the car. There's no other explanation."

According to reports, when she was reunited with her husband at Police Headquarters, Harris asked: "Did you say too much?"

Apparently, Harris' mother asked why she was not in more shock or reacting to the death of her son to which she replied: "I must be in shock."


Her comments at the funeral of her son have also raised a few eyebrows. Harris apparently said in her speech: "He’s in the most peaceful, wonderful place there is," adding that she wouldn't bring him back if she could.

Police confirmed last week that they were investigating the possibility that Mr. Harris may have intentionally left Cooper in the car. They also declared that they couldn’t confirm if Cooper was in the car at 9am when Mr. Harris arrived at work.

Harris is charged with felony murder and cruelty to a child in the second degree.
