Ross Harris Lead Secret Online Life Before Son's Death in Hot Car
Details have surfaced of a sordid life online for the dad accused of deliberately leaving his son in a hot car to die. INSIDE EDITION has the latest.
The dad accused of deliberately leaving his son in a hot car to die had a sordid, secret life online.
Ross Harris used a social media site called Skout for meeting pretty young women. In his profile he doesn't use his real name—he calls himself simply RJ.
He claims he is 27 years old, six years younger than his true age. He posted three pictures of himself including one shot in the mirror of a public bathroom. He says he's "just looking to talk." And this: "Message me I'm harmless."
He is truthful about one thing, acknowledging: "Yes, I'm married."
Harris was allegedly sexting up to six women online while his 22-month-old son, Cooper, was dying in his car.
HLN's Jane Velez-Mitchell told INSIDE EDITION, "To me, this says that he's living not only a double life, but a life of many different personas, and he is very adept at lying and he is very interested in sex with other women. And then he says, 'Hey, contact me. I'm harmless.' That is a tragic irony."
Some people are saying Harris is a male version of Casey Anthony, the Florida woman who was acquitted of murdering her daughter, Caylee to pursue a life of partying.
Velez-Mitchell said, "There is huge comparisons. The obsessions with sex and having a good time. The child being a burden."

Harris claims the child's death was a tragic accident, and he has pleaded not guilty. His bond with his wife, Leanna, still appears to be strong. She visited him in jail Tuesday and left in tears.
