Could Leanna Harris have also been involved in the tragic death of her son, Cooper? Growing suspicions about Justin Ross Harris’ wife and her odd behavior has led police to look into what role she may have played in her son’s death.
While her husband, Justin Ross Harris, 33, has been charged with second-degree child cruelty and felony murder, Leanna Harris, 30, has not been charged in the death of their 22-month-old son, Cooper. However, during Justin’s court hearing on July 3, the former mother of one showed little emotion as disturbing new details about her son’s death and her husband’s sexual escapades with at least 6 other women, which has led police to continue investigating whether or not she was involved in her son’s murder.
Justin Ross Harris’ Wife Leanna: Under Police Investigation In Son’s Death
On Thursday, July 3, Georgia prosecutors revealed that they believe Justin Ross Harris murdered his son because he dreamed of a “child-free life.”
However, did his wife, Leanna, long for the same sort of life?
During the hearing, in which Det. Phil Stoddard delivered multiple disturbing new details about Cooper’s death, Leanna sat in the courtroom completely unphased. In fact, the supposedly mourning mother chewed gum and revealed zero emotion — even as the detective described in gruesome detail how her son looked at the time of his death.
The detective also revealed that once Leanna and Justin were left alone in a room together during a police interview she turned to her husband and asked, “Well, did you say too much?”
In an even more suspicious turn of events, Det. Stoddard revealed that the couple had $27,000 worth of life insurance policies on their 22-month-old son’s life.
Cobb County Police have yet to confirm that Leanna is a suspect, but Det. Stoddard did reveal that they have only “scratched the surface” of this investigation, reports the Today Show.
On Monday, July 7, police released new search warrants show that police will search their medical records, a thumb drive, and an external hard drive. They have also revealed that they are looking into what role, if any, Leanna may have played in the death of their toddler.
Meanwhile, Justin continues to plead “not guilty” in the alleged murder of his son, Cooper, and remains in custody at the Cobb County Jail after being denied bail.
