    3:39 p.m. ET: The defense has called another witness to the stand, James Alex Hall. He works with Harris, the two went to college together and they also own a business together. Hall drove to lunch with Harris on the day his son died. When asked how Harris was acting that day: "I wouldn’t say abnormal in any way. I’d say normal as you can be. Nothing stuck out, nothing was weird."

    3:41 p.m. ET: They bought light bulbs during lunch and Harris dropped them off at the car before returning to work.

    “I drove as close as you would reasonably to drop somebody off at their car,” Hall said.

    3:45 p.m. ET: “He said he loved his son all the time. He said his son was very important to him,” Hall said. The prosecution begins its cross-examination and asks Hall if he knew that Harris was sexting women all day. Hall says no.

    "You don’t know everything about Mr. Harris, do you?" Hall shrugs.

    4:00 p.m. ET: The defense has called another one of Harris’ friends, Winston Milling, to the stand. He also went to lunch with Harris on the day his son died and says everything appeared normal.

    “He loved showing Cooper off to everybody. He liked picking him up, bringing him around. He was always happy, Cooper was always smiling,” Milling said.

    When asked about Harris’ deafness in his right ear: “I always have to go to the other side of his head to talk to him.”

    “Cobb County is making a big mistake,” said Roger Webb, the Harris’ real estate agent, who has known the family for two years. “He’s a very good guy. He wanted what’s best for his family.”

    “Everything was going right for this couple,” said Joe Saini, who rents the family their condo on Wynnes Ridge Circle in Marietta. He said the family was actively shopping for a house. “They wanted to buy a house so they could have some space for their child to run around the backyard.”

    Saini said Harris had been excited recently about a promotion and pay raise and was planning with his wife to begin house-hunting in East Cobb.

    Saini, the landlord, said he last spoke with Harris on Sunday, and that Harris, who goes by the name Ross, was happily looking toward the future. He was anticipating a promotion and raise at Home Depot, which would enable Harris to buy a house in a nice neighborhood. Harris and his wife were already scouting out houses on the Internet, favoring the East Cobb area because of its good schools. They expected to start visiting them in a few weeks.

    Saini said the Harrises were perfect tenants. When the air-conditioner recently broke down, Harris didn’t get angry about it. Most often, they paid their rent one day early. He said Cooper’s room was filled with toys.

    Even when Harris was arrested Wednesday, he made sure to have a family member call the landlord to tell him what happened.

    Saini said it is absurd to even consider that Harris would hurt his child.

    “We know him. He’s not that kind of character,” he said.

    He called the charges “cruel and unusual punishment.”

    'A police officer said to him, "Calm down and explain to your wife what's going on". I didn't hear what he said because I was going back in but then whatever he said triggered the police officer to say, "You need to watch your mouth" and then they put the handcuffs on him.


    'I don't know what he said to the wife - the only thing I heard was that he told her that her son was dead after that I couldn't hear.’


    Rodney added: 'He seemed suspicious. I got a child the same age and I know how it would feel it's devastating but at the same time it was more drama than in shock he was more acting out than he was in shock.


    'When you go in shock everything pauses in your brain and you don't know what to do.


    ‘It was more like he was putting on a show - that's pretty much what I got from it and I'm pretty sure everyone else felt the same way.'

    another:

    “The car drove up right by the store. An employee came in and said, ‘Call for an ambulance,’ so I dialed it and I walked outside,” said Rodney Smith, a witness who works at a pizza shop in the Akers Mills Square Shopping Center.

    “The child looked sweaty and tired. Two guys started to give the boy CPR. I was on the curb and the father and another individual brought the boy out. The father kept circling around us yelling and screaming, “What did I do? Oh my God, my child is dead!” Smith added.

    Police said Harris was distressed and had to be physically restrained when he realized his son was gone. But in hindsight, Smith says Harris’ actions didn’t appear to be that of a genuinely grieving father.

    “I feel he was putting on a show. If I was in shock and my son just died, I’m going to be doing more than running in a circle waiting for the ambulance to come. I’m taking my son to the doctor myself,” Smith said.

    Thanks for starting this thread, tlcya! I haven't seen some of these witness interviews before. Very interesting what the witness above says about Ross being on the phone with his wife, telling her "our baby is dead." I really wish we knew what time that 6 minute call was at. Could it be possible RH got Leanna on the phone at the daycare?

    “When I was 30-40 feet away walking towards them, I thought it was a doll, but as I got closer I said ‘Oh my God, that’s a little boy, that's a toddler.’ It broke my heart. He looked normal, just lifeless though. He wasn't wrinkled, he was clean, and his hair wasn't sweaty,” says Madden. “I was 5 feet away from him and 3-4 feet from the dad and sweaty hair would have been the first thing I noticed…and there was no stench.”

    When a daycare worker told Leanna Harris there were a "million" other reasons why Cooper never showed up, Leanna Harris immediately said, "No." She didn't show any emotion, police said, but did say it was her "worst nightmare."

    Leanna Harris called her mother, who screamed and cried loudly and asked Leann why she wasn't crying. Leanna Harris' reply was, "I must be in shock."

    Michael Gordon from Northport, Alabama, said he had known Harris for about 15 years and even remembered the day his friend announced his wife's pregnancy.

    He said: 'It breaks my heart that this horrible tragedy has happened. 'Ross high five'ed me at church almost 3 years ago and said we're pregnant, he had a huge smile on his face. He has been nothing but a caring father and supporting husband...

    long time friend of Ross Harris, Ben McRae, describes the man he knew and his thoughts on this case

    hey first bonded at the local University Church of Christ, during a church trip to see the Atlanta Braves play. They were very close and were both big Crimson Tide football fans.

    "From that point on, we were inseparable," McRea said. "We were best friends." He characterized Harris as popular and outgoing.

    SNIP

    "He was just a great and outgoing personality. He always liked being the center of attention. He was the Ferris Bueller of Tuscaloosa."

    SNIP


    "We joked he was the kind of person to be late to his own funeral," McRea said. "It didn't seem like he ever took anything seriously. But I always assumed he could be serious when he needed to be."

    "They seemed to love each other very deeply," McRea said. "I can't tell you how shocked I was to find out the things he was doing behind her back."

    "She had very low self esteem, always called herself 'overweight," McRea said.

    SNIP


    On June 19th, the day after his birthday, McRea was driving to meet up with his parents at a local Olive Garden restaurant. He got a Facebook message from a mutual friend that said "Have you seen this?" It was a link to a story about Ross. "I had to pull over, and I just cried like a baby." At the restaurant, he said he was extremely upset. "I said, 'Momma, Ross killed his baby. Momma, Ross killed his baby. How? How?"

    "Please God," he said he begged, "tell me he didn't leave him in the car. Tell me this wasn't on purpose."

    college friend Kristen Riker comments on the Ross Harris she knew

    "He was a very family-oriented, nice, genuinely great guy," she told TODAY. "He was very computer-savvy, he was able to help me out on projects when I needed it. ...He was very outgoing, he would tell jokes, he was the life of the class."

    SNIP

    "I just want everyone to know that the time I knew him, he was a really great guy... I don't know what to think and I'm trying to stay unbiased until more evidence is revealed."

    “Laid his son on the ground, started doing CPR trying to resuscitate him. Apparently the child wasn’t responding,” Hamilton told the station.

    Added Hamilton, “He kept saying, ‘What have I done? What have I done?’ And that’s all that I could ascertain that he was saying.”

    ‘He was in the same position as if he were sitting in the carseat,’ witness Dale Hamilton of the toddler boy who died in this hot car while his father worked at a Georgia mall.

    "He was lifeless, he was in the same position as if he were sitting in the carseat," witness Dale Hamilton told the newspaper. "It's something that I'll remember for a long time."http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/ga-man-charged-murder-baby-dies-hot-car-article-1.1836144


    One witness, Dale Hamilton, said he initially thought the child was choking, but quickly learned otherwise.

    “He pulled him out, laid him on the ground, and tried to resuscitate him,” Hamilton said.

    “He was lifeless, he was in the same position as if he were sitting in the carseat,” Hamilton said. “It’s something that I’ll remember for a long time.”

    "He kept saying, 'What have I done? What have I done?'" Dale Hamilton told CNN affiliate WSB-TV.

    "Within moments of the first responders getting to the scene and doing their job and questions began to be asked about the moments that led up to their arrival at the scene, some of those answers were not making sense to the first responders," Pierce of Cobb County Police said.
