Justin Ross Harris has been charged with murder for leaving his toddler to be cooked alive in a car, but startling new revelations have police taking a closer look at the boy’s mother, Leanna Harris, The National ENQUIRER has learned.
When Leanna was told by workers at her son’s day care facility that Cooper had not been dropped off on the day of his death, she calmly said, “Ross must have left him in the car.” Shockingly this was before she had been told of the boy’s death in a broiling Georgia parking lot.“She didn’t show any emotion at the scene when she was informed of Cooper’s death,” said Cobb County Police Det. Phil Stoddard. “She didn’t ask to see her son. She only wanted to see her husband.”
The ENQUIRER has discovered that when Leanna called home from police headquarters with the chilling news of 22-month-old Cooper’s death, her mother could be overheard saying on the phone: “Why aren’t you crying? Why aren’t you reacting?”
A police search warrant has also revealed that the youngster’s mom told police that losing her child because he was left in a hot vehicle was “her worst fear.” But when investigators questioned her further, she offered a different statement. “Leanna stated specifically that her fear was that her child would be left in a hot vehicle, not the fear of losing a child,” the warrant says.
What’s more, mourners were stunned in her eulogy at little Cooper’s funeral Leanna said “she wouldn’t bring her son back, even if she could.”
Also, Leanna and her cold-hearted husband took out two life insurance policies on Cooper totaling $27,000, and he called several family members from jail to discuss how to collect. On top of that, The ENQUIRER previously revealed that both Leanna and her husband had searched the Internet for how long it would take for a child to die in a hot car. Comments made by Cobb County District Attorney Vic Reynolds after Harris’ murder indictment indicate that the investigation is continuing. “The evidence in the case has led us to this point,” he said.
“Whether or not it leads us to anyone else remains to be answered.” While no charges have been brought against Leanna, legal experts believe the mounting evidence is pointing in that direction.
“The evidence against the mother appears quite damning,” former Florida homicide prosecutor and Florida-based criminal defense attorney Ken Padowitz told The ENQUIRER, “In this case, the wife has clearly shown she is potentially involved.”
Declared Georgia criminal attorney Esther Panitch: “She needs to make a deal before the state finds more evidence against her.”
