— Police handed out fliers on Saturday, asking for any information that residents might have about the slaying of a Cary mother.

Officers returned to the Lochmere neighborhood where Nancy Cooper, 34, of Wallsburg Court, lived before she was reported missing on July 12.

Police passed out fliers at the intersections of Lilly Atkins Road with Holly Springs Road and Lochmere Drive between 6 and 9 a.m. Those intersections are less than a mile from her house and three miles from the undeveloped subdivision where her body was found on July 14.

Cooper's husband, Brad Cooper, told police that his wife went missing after going on a jog at 7 a.m. Investigators want to talk to anyone who might have seen Nancy Cooper during that morning run.

Police have not named a suspect or person of interest in the case. Brad Cooper's attorneys have maintained that their client had nothing to do with his wife's death.

On Friday, Brad Cooper reached a settlement with Nancy Cooper's parents and aunt that allows them to keep custody of the couple's two young daughters through October.

    Interesting case, No info from police, keeping it close. It's obvious that they are keeping to themselves. I hope they announce an arrest soon, and I agree with a lot of comments made that this may be more random then the police are letting on?? I have seen nothing that would indicate Brad did it, unless you consider hearsay as evidence, which I do not.

    I watched a rerun of Dateline on MSNBC this weekend - the one about Stephen & Tara Grant. Swear to goodness, it almost seemed like it was a made for TV movie and that BC had gotten hold of the script that was Stephen Grant's part. Holy carp! Course, just how original can this stuff be?

    Dr Dataclerk : I guess you missed the part of my last posting that said I respect your opinion and perhaps you could also respect mine. Maybe your postings directed towards me aren't intended to sound harsh and mean spirited, but that's how I'm interpreting them. Honey.
