Authorities searched dead toddlers fathers office before arrest
Much more at link regarding petitions and other info
"Police said Harris did not cooperate when they tried to question him at the scene. They said they had to handcuff him before taking him to police headquarters for further questioning."
Didn't cooperate or was unable to?
That seems like an odd statement, and they had to put him in cuffs? Why? Do police have to cuff you just to take you to the station to question you? I grew up on Cobb County. I've never known them to do that.
Sounds to me like red flags were already there that this was no accident.

"Privately, Cobb County investigators tell 11Alive that there is evidence that the death is more than just a tragic accident. Publically, details of the case remain shrouded in mystery."

"Much has changed about the circumstances leading up to the death of this 22-month-old since it was first reported," Cobb County Police Sgt. Dana Pierce told CNN. He would not elaborate, citing an ongoing investigation, but his words made it clear this was not just another case of a young life left and lost to heat exposure in a hot car.
"The father is charged with felony murder and cruelty to children."
This takes away any of my doubt about the dad being charged with a very very serious crime and IMOO LE knows exactly what happened to the baby.
Father charged with Felony Murder
Autopsy results may answer questions in toddler’s death
When she saw a man pulling his toddler out of the backseat of an SUV, a Cobb County woman said she knew right away something was wrong. The boy wasn’t the right color and didn’t appear to be breathing, the witness told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“I knew something was wrong,” Artiyka Eastland, 25, of Smyrna, said Monday afternoon. “I didn’t want to get too close. I was emotional, just from afar.”
Eastland was eating in a restaurant Wednesday afternoon when she went outside, planning to plug her cellphone in inside her car. That’s when she heard the sound of screeching tires and watched helplessly as a man got out of his SUV and frantically tried to revive his 22-month-old son. Others in the busy parking lot also tried to help, but it was too late.
here is raw video of the AA witness speaking at the scene
Other direct quotes from Pierce include:
"Much has changed about the circumstances leading up to the death of this 22-month-old since it was first reported," Cobb County Police Sgt. Dana Pierce told CNN.
"I've been in law enforcement for 34 years. What I know about this case shocks my conscience as a police officer, a father and a grandfather," said Pierce.
"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,"
"We have been in communication with the mother throughout the investigation. At this time, I'm not at liberty to discuss her involvement. That's a part of the case our detectives are working on,"
"I cannot confirm that the child, as originally reported, was in the car at 9 a.m."
“Right now these charges will stand,” Sgt. Dana Pierce, Cobb County Police said.
One police sergeant told CNN: “What I know about this case shocks my conscience as a police officer, a father, and a grandfather.”
The AJC and WSB-TV are both reporting JRH knew his son was in the vehicle. They do not state their source.
Watching WSB-TV's 6:00 newscast. The reporter stated during the news story that:
So, I guess this means LE has security footage showing JRH going to his vehicle sometime during the work day. I wonder if the camera angle allows LE to be certain JRH would've seen his son from whatever vantage point he had? IMO.
Police have information that the father of a 22-month-old toddler found dead in the back of an SUV Wednesday knew the child had been left in the vehicle, according to Channel 2 Action News. Sources familiar with the investigation declined to release additional details to Channel 2, the station reported late Tuesday afternoon.
New article with a public official, no name, saying Harris knew his son was in the vehicle.

Cooper’s mother, Leanna Harris, has declined to speak publicly about either the toddler’s death or her husband’s arrest
This has me recalling the oddness of the statement (MO) given by the spokesperson about having been in touch with mom and not being able to be more detailed than that due to ongoing investigation.
