— An anonymous donor will provide a granite bench to be placed in Cary's Regency Park in honor of Nancy Cooper.

Cooper, a Cary mother of two, was found dead in July, two days after her husband said she went for a run. Her case is considered a homicide, but police haven't said they have any suspects.

Friends said she loved to run the greenways at Regency Park.

A local couple, who are in the granite business but wished to remain anonymous, is donating the bench to the town. It will be placed on the northeast edge of Symphony Lake.

A dedication ceremony is set for Oct. 12.
