    MO - Carol Cooper, 86, Kansas City, 17 Sept 2004

    Dogs aid in new search for woman

    Kansas City police used cadaver-sniffing dogs Saturday to search for the possible remains of an elderly woman who was beaten and robbed on Christmas Eve 1999 and disappeared in 2004.
    Police fear that the woman, Carol Cooper, is dead since she has not used her passport, credit cards or bank accounts, or talked to friends or relatives since September 2004.
    Cooper, who was 86 when she vanished, left her assisted living center Sept. 17, 2004, for her daily walk. A surveillance camera from the center in the 8100 block of Wornall Road showed her carrying a black bag.
    She never returned

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Missing victim’s voice can’t be silenced

    For years, the Christmas Eve rape tormented Carol Cooper. She never shook the depression, chronic headaches and desire to die that followed it.

    Friday, more than 10 years after she was beaten and raped, her attacker finally was sentenced to life in prison.

    She wasn’t there to see it.

    Yet everyone in the courtroom heard her words.
    ...
    On her forearm, there was a tattoo.

    In a thick German accent, Cooper told the nurses she had survived a concentration camp during the Holocaust. She apologized for making them come in to the hospital on Christmas Eve. When she spoke about the rape, Cooper told them she wanted to die.
    ...
    Death come and free me from the horrible headaches.

    Death, why not on Christmas Eve 1999? Why such a prolonging agony?

    Remember the horrible hours on Christmas Eve 1999, when I cried out to you, ‘Would you do that to your mother?’ … I don’t know how much longer I can last.

    ...

    She's still missing. A lengthy, haunting retrospective of the case, at:

    This is such a sad case. I wonder why she was never found. The Charley Project says that no foul play is suspected but also says they don't think she had any plans to harm herself, so it makes you wonder what happened to her. She had suffered so much in her life with the holocaust and the violent rape and robbery. I hope her rapist is still in prison. He truly ruined her life.
