ATLANTA (AP) — The father of a Georgia toddler who died in a hot SUV told authorities that he did an online search about children dying in vehicles because he was afraid it could happen.
Justin Ross Harris faces charges of murder and second-degree child cruelty in 22-month-old Cooper Harris' death.
Search warrants released Saturday by Cobb County Police Department say Harris told police that he researched what temperature can cause a child's death in a car.
The warrants say police were looking for a laptop, electronic devices and evidence of child neglect or abuse at the family's Marietta home. Harris' phone and car were included.
Harris has told police he was supposed to drive his son to daycare but drove to work on June 18, forgetting the boy was in the car.
