    Frist says he ruled Cooper's cause of death as hyperthermia and the manner of death as homicide. He says homicide simply means that the death was due to someone else's hand.

    Frist says the max temperature at which a human's body can live before it begins to shut down is 104 degrees.

    WARNING: The live video during this testimony may include some graphic images.

    Body temperature can go up to 104 degrees before you start to see permanent damage and death, Frist said. Your cells start to be unable to do their jobs, managing the organs.

    The prosecution is asking about the autopsy, showing photos to the jury.

    The greenish discoloration on his stomach is evidence that Cooper’s organs were beginning to decompose.

    Frist is noting abrasions on Cooper, pointing them out in photos to the jurors.

    He had abrasions on his cheek, on an arm, on his knee.

    Cooper also had an abrasion on his neck, signs of something rubbing against him. The little boy had a bandaid on his ankle.

    Is it fairly routine that you would task your investigators with getting a medical history, the prosecutor asked. Yes, Frist said.

    When Frist retired Oct. 1, 2014, the complete investigation had not been done so his report called cause of death as undetermined to allow for further investigation. “I wanted other investigative agencies to conclude their work before making a final determination,” Frist said.

    It was his intention though to label the cause as hyperthermia and a homicide, Frist said.

    A hyperthermia death would have taken time.

    You’re going to go through various phases when you’re getting heated but you’re not in a place where it’s going to cause death, Frist said. “It can be prolonged.”

    It’s very difficult to give the exact time of death, Frist said.

    Frist said he believes Cooper died a slow death.

    Breaking down under this testimony seems understandable. I think he's humanizing himself for the jury. ETA: I'm not terribly sympathetic to Ross, but for those who aren't as hardened, I'd say this display helps him.

    Just awful to think about- even if still alive I believe IMO he would have probably been unconscious at this point.

    Cooper would have experienced nausea, a headache, dehydration, seizures potentially and anxiety

    “He probably would have struggled as he was becoming more and more uncomfortable,” Frist said.

    Harris is sobbing as Frist describes how his son died.

    Frist says it's likely that Cooper was still alive when Harris returned to his car at lunch.

    Cooper’s death certificate was filed on Frist’s last day before retiring. Frist did not sign the death certificate.

    Frist explained again why he wrote undetermined on Cooper’s report before he retired – because the investigation was ongoing.

    “Because we have a paper document, it doesn’t mean that’s the end of the story,” Frist said.

    Things can change. That’s why there are amended reports.

    Whether Cooper had been left accidentally or on purpose, Cooper would have experienced the same trauma and death, the defense pointed out. Yes, Frist said.

    It’s unknown exactly how long it took Cooper to reach a dangerous heat level and how long it took him to die.

    I’ve been told that the temperature was only in the low 90s in the car at around noon, Frist said. “If that’s true, he could have survived that,” he said.
