(WXIA) A 22-month-old Georgia boy left in a hot car for several hours died of hyperthermia, according to an autopsy report.

Cobb County police issued a new warrant against Justin Ross Harris on Wednesday. Harris is accused of killing his 22-month-old son, Cooper, by leaving him in a hot car for over seven hours.

"Investigative information suggests the manner of death is homicide," reads a statement released by the Cobb County Police Department.

It's the first time police have publicly stated that Cooper Harris' death was not an accident and not a mistake.
