TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

A fundraising website set up in the wake of a toddler who died in a hot SUV has been taken down.

A source says the site "YouCaring.com" has taken the Harris page down because it is "inconsistent with YouCaring."

Justin Ross Harris has been charged with murder in the death of his son, 22-month-old Cooper Harris. He's accused of leaving his child in a hot SUV for hours while he was at work.

Questions are also swirling about the behavior of Cooper Harris' mother, Leanna, the day he was found dead in Cobb County, Georgia.

"In front of several witnesses, all of sudden she states, 'Ross must have left him in the car.' And they're like, 'What?' 'There's no other reason, Ross must have...no other explanation, excuse me, Ross must have left him in the car,'" said Lt. Phil Stoddard of the Cobb County Police Department.

Warrants reveal Leanna told police she also searched hot car deaths online because she was fearful it might happen.

Police also say the day Leanna and her husband, Ross, saw each other inside the police department, Leanna asked Ross, "Did you say too much?"

A Tuscaloosa defense attorney, who isn't affiliated with the case, calls her behavior a little odd.

"If she's involved and if she had knowledge in any way, she could be guilty of conspiracy," attorney Bob Prince said.

Georgia prosecutors haven't said if they are looking into Leanna's culpability. They will only say "much work remains."

"Obviously this is a high profile case and the district attorney's office is leaving no stone underturned," Prince added.

Warrants also show investigators want to take a closer look at Cooper and Ross Harris' medical records. Investigators want to know their medical history, problems, and any medications they make have taken.

FOX6 News is still waiting to hear back from YouCaring about the over $20,000 raised and whether or not the family will receive the money.
