Toxicology report released in death of Cooper Harris

COBB COUNTY, Ga. – Details of the toxicology report of the 22-month-old boy who died after his father left him in a hot car in Cobb County have been released.

Cooper Harris had no medications and no sedation agents given to him on the day of his death, according to the report.

The boy's father, Ross Harris, is charged with felony murder and cruelty to a child in the second-degree in the June 18 death.

Experts say the clean toxicology report doesn't help the prosecution because it reduces their ability to argue that the death was premeditated. However, the results are not pivotal in the case, according to experts.

For the second time, Harris' wife, Leanna, was spotted Wednesday at the office of her husband's defense lawyer. On Tuesday, our news partner WXIA cameras saw Leanna visit the Cobb County jail where her husband is being held.

Ross Harris was denied bond in a court hearing on July 3.
