    I think the bigger point is that the only search term that was apparently used was "child" - and the only hit was a one time visit to "child free" subreddit

    How many murderers would search "malicious intent," though that very much is what Stoddard insinuated RH did. A false assumption, it would appear, at least so far.

    Another one for you- how many IT professionals premeditating a murder wouldn't try to conceal or erase evidence of other crimes they're commiting even on the day they're committing a capital eligible crime?

    Defense attorney says while looking at Leanna Harris's computer, Yeager also looked at her resume, addresses, sonogram image, a poem about the loss of a loved one and multiple images of Cooper in a car seat.

    Yeager says from pictures, he believed Cooper was too big for his car seat. A father of five and grandfather of nine, Yeager said he knows how car seats work.

    Defense attorney says that although Yeager was told the Harrises allegedly told police they had researched hot car deaths, no evidence was found of those searches.

    Yaeger says he did not find any research of hot car deaths on Ross or Leanna Harris' computers.

    Willie Wilson made 20 cell phone searches on babies who are abducted and never found about an hour before he called 911 to report he was robbed and his baby was abducted. :rolleyes: However, the jury found him not guilty even though there was CCTV evidence, blood evidence and witness accounts of the night before. So I guess some murderers can be really stupid - and apparently some juries can be stupid too. RIP Delano.

    BTW, has Kilgore said whether or not Ross will take the stand? I would think that he could clear up a lot of questions. I'm always suspicious when a defense attorney chooses not to put the client on the stand, but that's just me. I hope we do get to hear from Ross though.

    I get that - but even if you were totally planning on doing away with someone, who would search murder and homicide? No one would. Is defense going to ask about every term he DIDN'T search for?

    This is going to take a very long time, but better it takes a long time, than there's a doubt in anyone's mind, I guess - so it's a good thing, i think. Tedious, but good. I don't think I'd enjoy being on the jury, though - for many reasons.

    Thanks for the updates. I can't follow the live feed right now.

    Were the photos of Cooper in the rear facing baby seat shown in court? Tia

    I'm not watching trial today but have kept up with thread. Thanks for the continuing discussion.

    It would have been extremely difficult for me to sit on this jury simply because I don't like JRH or his ex-wife. When the story broke and was covered by national media (CNN, HLN, MSNBC), I was interested and paid attention. Both parents' demeanor bothered me as they seemed to not really care about the situation they were in and came across as immature and self-involved. I'm not suggesting that I believe either or both are guilty of intentionally wanting their child dead, but these parents are just not likeable individuals. :moo:

    Defense walks jurors through search history on Ross Harris' computer. Search history shows Harris never searched child free. Yaeger says he didn't search it. He typed in the URL directly.

    Defense says Harris only visited the child free site one time in April and never searched it again.

    Yaeger says he spent hours, maybe days going through Ross Harris' computer.

    The jury at his murder trial sees video of Ross Harris leaving Home Depot the afternoon of June 18, 2014. Corporate security officer Wesley Houston said it was out of character and "like a public service announcement" when Harris told him he was headed to the movies with a friend that day, because the two never exchanged more than hellos, goodbyes, and minor pleasantries. Houston notes the time stamp is 6/18/2014, time 4:15 p.m.

    One poster here mentioned few pages back , and I agree with the post, why did Ross finally notice Cooper when he was driving and didn't see him when he arrived at work ? This is something I would want to know if I were one the jury

    Yaeger gets to offer his opinion as a grandfather that Cooper's seat was too small? Amazing that Staley seems to have no problem with what is a pattern of little prejudicial asides by State witnesses.

    Last I checked Ross Harris hasn't been charged with using an inappropriate car seat for Cooper, and the seat hasn't been mentioned as "evidence" of neglect, despite the State's manipulation of the car seat itself and photos of that work.

    The only possible relevance to this case then, is whether or not the size of the seat has any bearing on whether or not RH could see Cooper. Don't remember the Stste trying to assert it did.

    If by cold he means silent, there is something very wrong that she's walking around free.


    So they left him to do the job he was asked to do without a 'nudge' then.

    :D

    According to the defense opening statements, it was when Ross had to make a hard turn at an intersection and that is when he noticed Cooper

    Prosecution asks Yaeger, "Just because you didn't find anything doesn't mean it wasn't there, correct?" Yaeger says that is correct.

    Defense attorney says Ross Harris looked at the "childfree" links on the Reddit site on one day, April 28, 2014, and never again.

    "I don't report what I don't find," Yeager tells the defense attorney. Yeager says he spent hours and days analyzing the electronic devices.

    With all due respect, thinking that one can judge guilt by how suitably a suspect expresses emotion upon hearing that their child died an agonizing and completely preventable death is, imo , exactly why LE is finding itself in the pickle they are most definitely in, having apparently cut many corners and having dispensed with some legal nicities, including telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth in a court of law.

    How completely absurd. That's just like Boring asking the detective - "Just because you didn't smell anything in the car, isn't it possible that there was a smell?"
