The Parent Trap: Cooper Harris and Ayla Reynolds

by Grace4Ayla on July 12, 2014

On June 18, 2014, around 9:20 am, Justin Ross Harris strapped his 22 month-old son, Cooper Harris, into his too small, rear-facing car seat and drove the short distance to his place of work. Normally, Justin Ross Harris would drop off Cooper at the onsite daycare, located in a different building around the corner, but on this day he drove straight to work. Justin Ross Harris claims that Cooper must have fallen asleep during this ride, and was thus forgotten. Justin didn’t discover Cooper until after leaving work at 4:15 pm. He drove several miles away with the windows rolled up, then supposedly heard the child make a “choking” sound and realized he had left Cooper in the car all day long. Police at the scene reported a foul odor in the car.
