Justin Ross Harris, currently behind bars awaiting trial for allegedly murdering his 22-month-old son by leaving him in a hot SUV all day, has apparently been contacting his family to tell them how to collect life insurance on his late child.

Justin Ross Harris' Life Insurance Policy On Late Son

Search warrants claim that Harris, who had taken out two life insurance policies on his son Cooper – one for $25,000 and another for $2,000 – had contacted his family about them. Upon his arrest for his involvement in his son’s death, Harris admitted to detectives that he was currently $4,000 in credit card debt. He also revealed he had outstanding student loans and car loans on two vehicles.

"Through the investigation, Harris has made comments to family members regarding a life insurance policy that he has on Cooper and what they need to do in order to file for it," reads a search warrant obtained by People magazine.

In other search warrants, it’s revealed that investigators are looking for "emails regarding child, wife and family issues, photos/videos of the child to show development, information about car seat searches, and searches regarding car deaths."
