Is there a link to something telling that he was at the store at 4am? I haven't seen anything about that except here.

What cameras are you speaking of that would see the car? We live a few blocks from their home and there is a grocery right here. I don't believe there are cameras at either intersection he would go through to get to the store. If he went to the grocery on the other end of the neighborhood I don't think there would be cameras there.

While there are some things of question I find it odd that everyone has him convicted and ready to put under the jail. If he did do this then I'm on that bandwagon but I want to hear it from the police before I jump the gun.

There could still be some things we don't know. I could ask why were the police all around our home, lake, and park after 8pm last night "looking for someone"? Why did they block off the trail behind the park? Sure made myself and all my neighbors wonder what was going on.

The children's book, Heaven Has A Floor, I recommend highly. This was given to my daughter when she lost her father and it was a tremendous help to her. She still has her copy and buys others for people who have children going through the experience of having lost a parent or loved one. http://www.amazon.com/Heaven-Has-Floor-Evelyn-Roberts/dp/0803737092

What a WONDERFUL suggestion, and I am sorry for your loss, this thread has had me in tears for an hour, enough already.

Good catch SeriouslySearching.
Something that mostly women would find significant.

Someone who was met outside her home when she got there and was scared. I bet her cell is in it.

My children were older, 10 and 8, but I was advised to say, under different circumstances though, that he went to Heaven because it was his time, and that it is ok to be sad and Mommy and Daddy are very sad as is our family too, but that it does not change our love for him, or his for all, and whenever we feel sad we should talk about it and remember something happy about them. For me, I simply said that he had an accident and went to Heaven. I was advised not to be specific as the grief is enough to start, and they will let you know when they are ready if ever, to hear anything specific. I did not want them carrying anything but the loss and then healing in their hearts. If they are playmates of Miss Nancy's children, I would reassure them also that you are not going anywhere, that it is rare to lose a Mommy, and to try to be strong for the girls as they will need their pals.

Now, Im gonna go be sick, really sorry for your loss.

Thank you Blink32. I like this approach and will use it with my own kids, who know Nancy and have some sense of what is going own. I'm also going to print out this advice and bring it with me when I watch the next news conference tonight with others. I know that someone is arranging for grief counselors and child therapists to help assist, but not sure when that will occur. I really do appreciate the support that you and others here are providing.

She had to know he was capable of this. In her gut, she had to know....


SeriouslySearching,

Your comment made me think about other 'wife killers." What about Laci Peterson? I wonder if she knew SP was capable of doing the evil he did?

I honestly think some women don't have a clue.

Buttabsy, Welcome to WS! I realize we may come off as sounding like we are jumping the gun or as uncaring about the feelings of those involved, but I assure you this isn't the case. We have worked on and followed so many of these cases, things come out early that raise definite red flags for us. Some come from LE (Law Enforcement) in their veiled comments and other things come from knowing the signs of not only abusive men, but men who do murder their wives instead of getting a divorce.

In this particular case, her husband is a suspect or a POI...even if LE has not named him yet. They will be concentrating on him right now. The reason they do not name them as such is because it legally changes the status and curtails the way they can investigate the person. They also have to track down any other leads not associated to him. They are searching for evidence of a crime scene and most likely why they closed the trail. The case will go from a missing persons to a homicide as soon as they have her formal ID.

I agree with you. I think that while some women may know deep down that their loved ones could be capable of such things (ie Stacy Peterson MAY have known Drew had homicidal tendencies, IMO) I think that most women don't have a clue, and think they have a "nice guy." I honestly don't think Laci had a clue....

Brad Cooper appeared at a press conference today thanking those who were searching for his missing wife. Nancy Cooper had told friends she wanted a divorce. She wanted Brad Cooper to leave the house but he refused. At today's press conference Brad wore a long sleeve shirt. Later today scratches were noticed on his arms.

Nancy Cooper, 34 was discovered around 7:30 tonight by a citizen walking his dog around Woody's Lake, a small lake, more like a pond off of Holly Springs Road down near the end of Felding Road (http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=chrons disease&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wl) in Cary. An autopsy will confirm the identity and make a determination as to the cause of death. Hopefully an arrest will be made before the six o'clock news.

Boone said Brad Cooper has been helpful and in constant contact with police. Going for a run was normal activity for Nancy to do on a Saturday morning. The couple lived just off several trails and friends say Cooper was training for a half-marathon.

There is no forensic link established between the body and Cooper, who police still call a missing person.
Police say Cooper's husband is cooperating with police, letting them search two cars and giving them a purse.

No one at all has "implied" that Nancy deserved to be hurt and no one has implied that this is "her fault".

People having questions does not take away from the fact that she is an innocent victim and no one here has ever said that she "shoulders the blame". NO ONE AT ALL.

I'll be very surprised if the body is not hers. LE definitely knows by now. Once I was involved in a search and we found her body - we knew right away it was her because of the clothing/purse. The news didn't release it was her until after the autopsy a few days later. So sad.

For the sake of Nancy's family and friends I hope that isn't the case. The only thing I can think of is if this body was not dressed in what Nancy was described as wearing. Depending on decomp they may need dental records and any prior finger prints on file anywhere.

Yesterday many of the people searching wore long pants and shirts since we were going further into the woods and it was pouring so we chilled faster. Brad was spotted searching with the police and made a comment he was being eaten up with possible poison ivy. He was itching all over. Maybe the scratches are from him itching or the brush and not Nancy?? I know I am probably grasping at straws in hopes Nancy will be found alive and he is innocent.

Or maybe the itching is to cover up the scratches that were seen on his arms?

To our newest Webslueth members, WELCOME!

To friends of Nancy, a 'special' WELCOME and we're sorry for the pain you feel now. Whether the person found is Nancy or not, she's missing and we can understand you feel a great deal of anxiety. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as well as Nancy and her family.

I realize we come off kind of blunt, but that's what we do here. We see so many of these cases, it honestly breaks all our hearts. But we also know the signs and MO's. So often a 'perp' will think he's more clever than all those before him and most importantly, smarter than LE. But, in all honestly, they're almost like an open book. They may change the 'order,' but they all seem to do the same sort of things.

I know we don't know that the husband did this, or that it's even Nancy at all. But believe me when I say that so often we individually pray that it's not the husband. It's too heartbreaking, even for us. As a matter of fact, many of us cheer when we're proven wrong! LOL, except with the run-away bride! :rolleyes:

Anyway, thanks for all the new members joining and for some of the insight of the local area etc. Hope you all will stay for awhile.

I guess now all we can do is wait for the 5:00 presser and pray until then that it's not Nancy and ........................well, I guess that's all, because like others have said, that's someone's wife, mother, or daughter.....

Fran, You echo my sentiments exactly. Unfortunately we have seen so very many of these types of cases and sadly they will continue until the end of time. The only thing we can do is pray for Nancy and her family, and if sadly it is her then we can pray for justice to be served to the perp. I am lifting Nancy and her family up in prayer at this moment.

I posted a little bit on the Michelle Young since I live close-by. I'm also only about 6 miles from Lochmere.

I'm a traffic engineer and for those that have commented about the cameras potentially being able to sget an image his car, this may be the case. However, footage from most of the cameras that are set up for monitoring traffic do not actually keep a recording of the footage. Rather, they are used in the real-time to monitor for traffic congestion, incidents, etc. This may or may not be the case for this camera in particular.

Anyone considered that Nancy possibly had some kind of medical condition [heart attack, asthma attack, etc.] and simply passed out/died where her body was found? [This obviously assumes that the body is hers.] I'm inclined to think this is likely not the case since it does not appear that this would have been a normal running trail however just another scenario to throw out.

I also bookmarked the book recommendation.

wufdude....I mentioned the cameras in high hopes that some footage could seal the deal on time and possibly who passed thru at certain hours. I know WRAL has a camera at Cary Pkwy&Holly Springs, Tryon&Cary Pkwy, and Tryon& Kildaire Farm. These are 3 intersections that are possible that were used. If these cameras don't help, maybe this person ran a red light and got that light to go off. My daughter got a red light ticket and there is absolutely no denying the footage they obtain.

wufdude
07-15-2008, 04:28 PM
Yes, the red light cameras take a photo of a vehicle as it passes through the intersection when it has a red signal.

The cameras that WRAL use for real-time coverage typically do not record the footage thus, they may not be of any use in trying to pinpoint the time that a vehicles may pass through the intersection. I may be wrong on this at this particular intersection and it would be a tremendous tool if so.

fran
07-15-2008, 04:46 PM
Although footage of 'our' POI driving through an intersection at a specific time to pinpoint his purchase of (allged cleaning supplies) milk, I believe there is most likely witnesses and maybe even footage of him at the store. At least that's kind of the implication I got from the person who told us about the store run.

THAT in itself, IF true, would be a HUGE piece of evidence against him! IMHO...who would go at 3:30 a.m. or 4:00 a.m. to buy CLEANING SUPPLIES?

Coincidence?

There is no coincidence when it comes to MURDER. That is, IF this is murder.

I am the one that told of the store run. My intersection concept was that perhaps it would show the vehicle going to the point where the body was found and not the store run. The store is in direction of her home and the body in another direction. I understand the video was clear without a shadow of doubt to what was purchased at the store.

His absence speaks volumes. The question was asked about them having a car posted outside of his house and having him under surveillence since Saturday. LE said they did and also had a car with the rest of her family to serve them in any way needed. (Nice save!)

I do feel so sorry for her family. They seem to be still in shock and her parents are taking it very hard. I thought the brother did a good job under the circumstances, but I could hear the quiver in his voice. I can't imagine how they must be feeling about her husband at the moment. I am sure they have so many unanswered questions they would like to put to him now.

When reporters asked about marital problems and whether Bradley had been to the store in the early morning hours, it seemed that Nancy's father was nodding "yes" while the woman (sorry didn't catch her title) giving the PC was saying that it was all part of the investigation and she couldn't answer those questions. This was just my opinion, though.

Body found in U.S. may be former Edmontonian


Elise Stolte, edmontonjournal.com

Published: Tuesday, July 15, 2008
EDMONTON - Investigators in North Carolina are trying to identify a body they believe may be that of missing former Edmonton woman.
Nancy Cooper, 34, went missing early Saturday morning, said police with the town of Cary. Her husband Brad Cooper told police he last saw her when she left her home to go running.
A weekend search was called off when a body was found floating in a pond surrounding a storm sewer Monday evening.

[/URL]
"We're waiting for the medical examiner to identify the body," said Cary police spokeswoman Deanna Boone.
Nancy Cooper moved from Edmonton to North Carolina with her husband eight years ago. They have two daughters, ages four and one.

Brad just needs to step up to the plate and come clean. Save everyone the pain of going through this any further. If he was any kind of man before, he should be a man about what happened and tell them the truth. It won't go easier on him, but it is the right thing to do for their children and Nancy's family.

I'd appreciate if we could stop implying that the victim should shoulder any of the blame. Maybe it is worth discussing after the dust has settled, but right now it is not constructive.

Nancy- I know exactly where you are emotionally, but I can assure you no-one here feels Nancy deserves ANY blame, nor does any other murdered person. I think we are just collectively wishing aloud that there was some magic x on a man's forehead that may be capable of this so it would stop. We are ONLY here to be constructive and to support, and hopefully in some measure bring awareness to save the next Nancy Cooper and the pain her babies and family will bear.
God Bless.

Her body was found around 7:30 p.m. on the banks of a storm water pond off Fielding Drive just outside of Cary. It’s near an area where new homes are under construction.

Sweety, don't worry about it. If it didn't come from you, it came from someone else. There are probably many people around town that are aware of that early morning visit to the store. People talk.

Just be aware though, that LE and media do read here. That's in part why, for me anyway, if a case hits too close to home, say someone I know or know someone related to a person involved in a case, or if someone I know could possibly be involved in the investigation, I usually steer clear of that particular case or thread. It's better for me anyway, to just say nothing.

The owner and mods at Websleuths, will also be the first to tell family and friends of victims or even possible POI, to steer clear of these sorts of sites. It can cause a lot of emotional distress if one is actually connected to a case. You saw how we throw out things here. It bounces off our backs because we're used to it and not emotionally involved in these cases on a first hand basis. We've actually lost some good previous posters, because a case came up that one of their family members were involved in. No, they weren't the perp, but their names came up in the discussion and the member didn't like what was being said. Feelings were hurt, etc.

Please don't stop participating in the discussion. We value your input. IF you know something you aren't sure should be said, then just keep it to yourself until you read it somewhere else, like in the main stream media. Then it's already out there and you won't have to worry about revealing something you shouldn't have.

Hope this helps,
fran

PS........In my heart, I knew it was Nancy, but darn! I was hoping it wasn't. I guess we can just now sit and wait and see what LE does. Sad, so, so, sad. :(fran

I see no problem with people who are directly or indirectly related to any case being involved from the beginning as long as they understand what we do and how we go about figuring out cases. While we do not purposefully try to harm anyone, there are always people who are not comfortable with the way we discuss details and players. They would certainly hate the way LE discusses them!

I also see nothing wrong with releasing information on the case before the media or LE does. If it was something that ONLY LE should know...it would be different. However, a trip to the store for a purchase was done in public and seen by witnesses. This in itself makes it information which cannot be expected by LE to be exclusive. If a news organization knew it first...they would not wait to report it, imo. Mom did absolutely NOTHING wrong!

When approached by an ABC News affiliate WTVD (http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/index)at his home Monday, Brad Cooper said that he had been searching "by the lake" for his wife. He declined to be interviewed on camera and ABCNews.com was unable to contact him.

Thanks, Busy!

It is a good thing that LE has been staking out his place. He has no chance to take off. I wish more LE would follow their lead around the country. It was very smart of them! (If only BBPD had done the same with DP, we might know what happened to Stacy!)

www.wral.com reports they have served a search warrant and are conducting a search...but it won't give me the story link yet.

Cary police were also executing a search warrant at Nancy and Brad Cooper's home Tuesday evening. Meanwhile, her family likens their loss to a wheel that is missing a spoke.

Brother doesn't mentions that Nancy was a 'wife.'

LE tells the public they're not in danger

LE says this is NOT a 'random act.'

Search Warrant being served.:eek:

Husband not at press conference.

Where is a GOOD up to date picture of Brad Cooper?:waitasec:

You left out a few other things, Fran!

Reasons to suspect Brad Cooper could become Suspect #1:

* Didn't call LE when she went missing.
* Bought detergent with bleach at 4:00 am.
* Has scratches on arms.
* Didn't go out on initial searches.
* Last person to have seen Nancy.
* Admits marital problems, but not that she wanted a divorce.

Photo (mugshot) will follow soon.

Yes, Fran listed that one. It is quite interesting that he decided at the last minute to decline going to the press conference. Of course, he is devastated. His world has just gotten thrown right under the microscope.

Hi SS! :) I'm so sorry, I'm behind and just trying to catch up ~ when did we find out about him buying detergent at 4am and about the scratches on his arms? Was this at a news conference?

Catching up on another very sad case.
WS is such a nice place to visit; no bickering, sarcasm, snide remarks, just honest posters keeping the facts straight.
I don't have access to the pressies and appreciate your updates.
Sadly, I think another young husband may have ruined MANY lives.

Let me find the post for you...but the shopping trip was a WS exclusive which actually made the presser from a reporter in Alberta, Canada!! Redacted statement When asked, the Chief was surprised, but could not deny or confirm it. (It was great!)

Hi! :seeya: I'm afraid I have to agree with you about the husband. I just don't see this being committed by a stranger especially with LE telling the public they don't have to fear.
