MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Child safety advocates and others following the case of a Georgia toddler who died in a hot car are raising money in hopes of building a park in his memory.

Police have said 22-month-old Cooper Harris died after being left inside an SUV while his father was at work at a Home Depot office in suburban Atlanta. The child's father Justin Ross Harris, who told police he forgot Cooper was in the car June 18, faces a murder charge.

The Marietta Daily Journal reports (http://bit.ly/X18Pwy) that the group known as Cooper's Tree House Foundation has started an online campaign to try and raise $250,000 to build a park either in Marietta or Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Harris is a native of Tuscaloosa and moved to Georgia in 2012 to work for Home Depot.
