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.
Why does this remind me of Casey Anthony, another murderous parent, who expected us to believe not only that her daughter Caylee died in the pool and then was hidden in the trunk of her car for many days until her father could dump the body, but that she also thought the car’s horrible smell was from dead squirrels in the engine?
I wonder what Justin Ross Harris thought that foul odor was? Leftovers from Chick-Fil-A? [click to continue…]
