Mom of Toddler Killed in Hot Car Researched Child Deaths

The mother of a toddler who died after his father left him all day in a hot car told police that -- like her husband -- she researched child deaths in hot cars, according to new documents from police.

The documents were released the day after the funeral for 22-month-old Cooper Harris was held in University Church of Christ in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Cooper's father Justin Harris is accused of the toddler's murder and is being held without bail in Cobb County, Ga. According to police warrants released Saturday, Harris, 33, told police he searched child deaths inside vehicles and "what temperature it needs to be for that to occur" because he "was fearful that this could happen."

According to newly released warrants, Harris' wife Leanna Harris told police she did the same thing.

"Leanna Harris, the child's mother was also questioned regarding the incident and made similar statements regarding researching in car deaths and how it occurs," read the warrant.

Leanna Harris has not been taken into custody or listed as a suspect by police.
