COBB COUNTY, Ga. -

The FOX 5 I-Team was the only television news crew there Tuesday as investigators with Cobb County tested the real-time conditions of the Harris family car, simulating the day that young Cooper Harris died. Investigators brought the actual vehicle to the exact spot where it was parked the day that Cooper Harris was left in the car by his father, Ross Harris.

Using an array of instruments, investigators seemingly worked to recreate as many of the exact details of the day of the alleged crime as possible. While the exact measurements are not known, an investigator testified that the temperature was believed to have reached well above 100 degrees inside the vehicle for an extended period of time the day that Cooper Harris died. An autopsy later confirmed the manner of death as Hyperthermia.
