    'Something didn't seem right, I thought he was going through these weird spurts of being frantic and then being very calm.

    'He wasn’t looking back in concern for his son, he was looking back to see who the police were talking to' - witness Artiyka Eastland

    'The police put him in the cop car and he was talking to one of the detectives and he would be very calm, but then very crazy, crying. I saw him looking back trying to work out what was going on, but he wasn't looking back in concern for his son, he was looking back to see who the police were talking to.

    'I can't imagine what it's like to lose a child but his body language in the back of the car was very odd.
 'I felt like he was worrying about something, it was strange behavior, he was back and forth between crying and looking around.' Artiyka also believes the baby had been dead for many hours before Harris pulled the child out of the car. 'The baby was a grey/blue color, not its natural color. I know he was in the car seat but when the dad placed him on the ground his legs stayed in the same sitting position, as if he was laying on the ground with his knees up in the air stiff. It wasn't natural.

    Witness Dale Hamilton reported seeing Harris pull into Cobb County's Akers Mill Square shopping center, stop his car straddling two lanes of traffic, jump out of the vehicle and start to perform CPR on the child, according to the station.

    "It is tough," Hamilton told WGCL. "I'm not sure how someone could forget they have a child in the backseat.... He was constantly saying, 'What have I done, what have I done.'"

    Thursday afternoon, a handful of cars were parked outside the family’s condo. A man identifying himself as Justin Harris’ father, Reggie, came outside to walk the family dog.

    “We have some pretty strong feelings but we can’t talk right now,” he said.

    Ross Harris' father also spoke [at CH's funeral] to the crowd sharing a story about how his son Ross had a dream Cooper was sitting on Jesus’ lap looking down at them, before the boy's death.

    He said he was playing a guitar in the dream and Leanna was working in a nursery with other children. Their Marietta pastor David Eldridge conducted the service that lasted more than an hour.

    Cooper's grandfather said nobody loved and worshiped him as much as his father. He said he called him his handsome little devil.

    Leanna Harris told mourners in Tuscaloosa that before Cooper's birth, she was concerned "about never being able to have a child." She described the toddler as perfect and told how he changed her and Ross Harris' lives. "As children do, he turned our lives upside-down," she said. "Cleaning, changing diapers, dinner, bath time. Finally, what I would call mommy time. I wouldn't trade it for the world."

    She said Cooper had had trouble sleeping of late, and he had slept with her and her husband the two nights before he died, "snuggling in between both of us." "I remember turning over in the middle of the night. His mouth was open and his full toddler lips just breathing right into my face. I will cherish that moment forever."

    She further said she was "happy" that Cooper would miss some of life's letdowns, including his first heartbreak, his parents' and grandparents' deaths and who to sit with at lunch at middle school.

    "I miss him with all of my heart. Would I bring him back? No. To bring him back into this broken world would be selfish," she said.
    She closed by saying that she wasn't angry with her husband and that Cooper "meant the world" to Ross, whom she described as a "wonderful daddy."

    A friend of the couple, Winston Rowell Milling, however, told the court that things seemed normal. Milling and his wife had joined Ross and Leanna Harris for festivals, picnics, hiking on Kennesaw Mountain and other family events. Both parents seemed to have a loving relationship with Cooper, he said.

    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.

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


    "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.


    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."

    http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/hot...aloosa-n153156


    But now McRea, who was a groomsman in Harris' wedding, says that if his old pal did in fact leave his 22-month-old son, Cooper, in a piping hot SUV on June 18 intentionally, he hopes "he gets what's coming to him."

    "I mean, it's like he's just a different person," McRea told the network. "It would only take, a — I mean it seems like a monster. This don't seem like my friend, it seems like a monster."


    "I cared about Leanna too; it just blows my mind. I didn't see him as the cheating type," he added. "As more stuff comes out I just look over at my roommate and I say, 'How did he become this monster? What happened?'"

    Infidelity led to a falling out between the buddies in fall 2010. A mutual friend had been cheating on her husband and McRea knew about it. Leanna Harris wanted him to tell the husband, who was also their friend, but he did nothing.

    This just bugs me. LH knew it too. Why is she putting it on someone else to tell him?
    She has a voice too.
    Slip him an anonymous note! _geez

    Why didn't she ask Ross to tell the guy his wife was cheating?

    Earlier in the funeral service at University Church of Christ, Harris called from the Cobb County Jail and addressed the crowd by speaker phone:

    "Thank you for everything you've done for my boy," he said. "Good life. (Inaudible) No words to say. Just horrible. (Inaudible) I'm just sorry I can't be there."

    A former co-worker, speaking on the on the condition his name be withheld, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Harris had confided to him years ago he had no sense of smell, although there was no mention of that during Harris' 7/3 court session.

    When she first heard Cooper was in a rear-facing seat, child advocate Janette Fennell of KidsAndCars.org said it made her believe the Harrises were extremely safety-conscious.
    “Most parents think you do away with the rear-facing seats after their first birthday, but we now know that’s not the best approach,” Fennell said. In 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a policy statement advising parents to keep their toddlers in those seats until at least their second birthday for safety reasons.

    Justin Ross Harris and his wife Leanna use to live in a quiet neighborhood in Moundville, just outside of Tuscaloosa.

    About four years ago, Chris Wilkinson met Harris after hiring him to build a website for her business. Wilkinson said, “Very congenial nice guy, always very affable. He's kind of the last person I would've ever thought would hurt his child.”

    The last time Wilkinson communicated with Harris was about 7 months ago via Facebook, about the website. Although their friendship wasn't the kind, where they talked every day, Wilkinson said she could tell he loved his son. “He was very prideful. You know, Cooper, 'Meet Cooper. Isn't he, that's my boy, isn't he great? That kind of dad, like you'd expect any father to be really. [He was] Just excited about having him, excited about showing him off. “

    After watching Harris' bond hearing, Wilkinson doesn't know what to think. “My heart and head are saying 2 different things right now. You know nobody wants to think anybody would hurt a child whether you know them or not and then when you know that person and you think you know their character, it's completely baffling how this occurred.”

    Wilkinson said the allegations about Harris texting several woman while his son was dying, is not the Ross Harris that she knows.

    Stoddard stated that on the day of his son's death, Ross Harris was texting several women. One woman said that Ross "wanted to hook up." Several explicit pictures were sent, beginning in the morning and lasting throughout the day, according to Stoddard.

    ____

    Stoddard testified that on June 5, one of the women texting Ross asked, "Do you have a conscience?" to which Harris replied, "Nope."

    ____

    The detective said that when he told Harris he'd be charged with murder, Ross responded, "But there's no malicious intent."

    ____

    When asked by the judge, the detective stated that it is believed Cooper had died by noon.

    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.

    Ross Harris was scheduled to meet friends for a 5 p.m. showing of the movie "22 Jump Street," according to Stoddard, but he told them he'd be late.

    He left work at 4:16 p.m., and it would have taken him about 10 minutes to get to the theater, the detective said.

    When Harris didn't show up 30 minutes into the movie, Hall stepped outside to contact him. Harris didn't respond to texts, and phone calls went straight to his voice mail, Hall said.

    STODDARD: I did.

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And what did she say?

    STODDARD: She stated that she had first met Ross, and she knew him as Ross, through Scout (ph), which is another messaging service. And that he had met up and that he wanted to hook up with her.

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And did she talk to you and confirm the nature of what you saw on these chats back and forth?

    STODDARD: Yes, she did.

    ___________

    The 2nd of 6 women, this is the underage girl:

    STODDARD: I have.

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And how old is that girl?

    STODDARD: She is 17 at this time.

    STODDARD: She sent a picture of her exposed breasts.

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And did he send any pictures to her?

    STODDARD: They do.

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And when did they end?

    STODDARD: Around 3:00 that afternoon.

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: So about an hour before he left.

    STODDARD: Yes.
