Twitter users disgusted at #HotCarDeath hearing; ‘sexting’ details revealed

A toddler’s tragic death in Georgia last week is now a social media phenomenon. Cobb County, Georgia father Justin Ross Harris faced a hearing today for murder after his 22-month-old son Cooper son died in Harris’s car.

Cooper died after being left in the car for more than seven hours while Harris was at work. Harris claims he simply forgot his child was in the back seat.

During the hearing, Cobb County police Detective Phil Stoddard said when Harris stopped in a shopping center on his way to a movie at 5 p.m., he pulled over and took Copper out of the car. Stoddard said Cooper was dead when his father pulled him from the backseat.

Stoddard said witnesses heard Harris tell someone by telephone that Cooper was dead. Harris told detectives he never reached anyone.

Autopsy results showed the boy, Cooper Harris, died of hyperthermia, and that the investigation “suggests the manner of death is homicide,” the Cobb County Police Department said.

Dozens of reporters were on scene tweeting from the hearing.

Viewers were horrified at details revealed at the probable cause hearing:

Prayers for little Cooper. May justice be served.
