Police again search Cooper home

Posted October 30, 2008

— Police searched Brad Cooper's Cary home late Wednesday, two days after he was charged with murder in the July death of wife, Nancy Cooper.

Neighbors said investigators visited the home Wednesday evening. No search warrants have been returned to the Wake County Courthouse, so it's unclear what was seized from the house, if anything.

A Wake County grand jury on Monday indicted Cooper, 35, more than three months after his wife's body was found in an undeveloped subdivision three miles from the Coopers' Cary home. A state medical examiner's autopsy found she had likely been strangled.

Cooper told police Nancy Cooper went jogging around 7 a.m. on July 12 and never returned home. Through his attorneys, he has denied being involved with her slaying, but has admitted to police that he and his wife were having marital difficulties.

Claiming Cooper was emotionally abusive to his wife in the months prior to her death, Nancy Cooper's family filed for and gained granted temporary custody of the children.

    Maybe they went in to get Bradly's "work out" clothes so he can stay in shape while in jail and train for his PRISON tri-athalon?

    He may never see prison.

    The police are looking for any forensic evidence they can. You have to understand, with forensic evidence, you can make anyone look guilty. I would almost put money on it that overzealous foresic evidence can make anyone of us look guilty. Sad!! Justice for BC!!!!

    dtw, I'm with you, innocent. Have they even looked at anyone else? Its an old fashioned witch hunt.

    """Sounds like they got "the ham sandwich" indicted and now they're faced with trying to find enough evidence to convict."""

    Well the prosecution has to turn over the evidence "convicting" the accused to the defense. How long the defense has had this is unknown.

    You would think if there was damning evidence it would be all over the media by now. Is it possible the defense has refuted some of this "convicting" evidence and LE has to go find something else.

    But wait! The DA, COLON WILLOUGHBY, would never ever indict unless he had the smoking gun. Not this DA. I know. I know, I know, (hand waving franticly in the air!) The investigators are there because they now have to tie up all those loose ends for slam dunk case, cause the DA is thinking about seeking the DEATH PENALTY!

    What did LE take this time?

    That poor "ham sandwich". I love the way folks convict based on an indictment. Any DA worth their salary can get an indictment. Mike Nifong got an indictment ~ we know the rest of THAT story!
