MARIETTA, Ga. –  Questions still remain in the case of a father who is charged with felony murderafter leaving his 22-month-old son in a hot car on Wednesday.

Justin Harris told authorities he was supposed to take his son to daycare but forgot he was in the car and went to work instead.

The child was left strapped in a car seat for nearly seven hours.

When Harris noticed his son was in the back seat, he said he pulled over into a shopping center and tried to perform CPR.

However, police say that was not the case.

Authorities released an arrest warrant that says Harris returned to his car and opened the driver’s side door several hours before he said he found his son in the backseat.

The child was pronounced dead at the scene.

Reporter Martin Savidge retraces the steps of Justin Harris’ route to work, which raises questions about the death of his son.
