The Georgia father who allegedly left his young son to suffocate in a hot car for seven hours very likely did it intentionally, says Dr. Mary Ellen O'Toole, a retired FBI senior profiler.

"This was very likely not an accident,'' O'Toole, who was with the agency's Behavioral Analysis Unit for 28 years, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

She pointed to the allegation that Justin Ross Harris was conversing sexually with six different women via text messages as his son suffered.

"When you're sitting and you're texting for a period of seven hours . . . what that says to me is that you're able to function,'' O'Toole said Monday.

"Strategically, you're able to put together emails and photographs and send them to six different people, so neurologically your brain is working, which tells me this is probably not a memory loss.''

"His friends also testified that they went to lunch and there was nothing unusual about his behavior. In other words, he wasn't sweaty, he wasn't crying, he wasn't distracted . . . that told me that he didn't have the appearance of a lot of stress or a lot of anxiety.'' she said.

Cooper Harris, 22 months old, died in June after his father left him inside a hot SUV in Cobb County. Justin Ross Harris is charged with murder and child cruelty.
