COBB CO., GA (WALB) -

According to sources of WSB-TV, which is WALB's ABC affiliate in Atlanta, there is evidence Justin Ross Harris knew his son was left in the back of his car. The boy was found dead later the same day.

Ross, 33, told authorities he forgot to take his 22-month-old son Cooper to daycare last week at the on-site child care facility at Home Depot Headquarters where he works.

It was more than seven hours later when Harris claimed he realized his unresponsive son was still strapped in the car seat. By then the child had died.

WSB-TV Reporter Jodie Fleischer broke new developments in the case on Twitter just after 5 p.m. Tuesday.

"Sources tell me there is evidence Cobb father Justin Ross Harris knew his son was left in the hot car," she wrote in a Tweet.
