Back in May, we discussed the Brad Cooper Case.  My guest were Lynne Blanchard and a first time exclusive interview with Brad Cooper's parents.  This Wednesday we will be doing part two of the Brad Cooper case.  Our guest again will be Lynne Blanchard.  On a warm Saturday morning in July of 2008, Nancy Cooper was reported missing by concerned friends.  Three days later on July 14th 2008, Nancy's naked body was found face down in a creek miles from her home.  Nancy's husband told investigators and friends Nancy left their home for a morning jog around 7 am. Despite any physical evidence, several reports by  witnesses who claimed to have seen Nancy jogging that morning, reports of a strange van in the neighborhood days prior and the day Nancy went missing and a lover from years prior who told police he knew Nancy's run route and had confronted Nancy for "saying bs lies" about him, Brad Cooper was convicted in Nancy's death.  Is Brad Cooper the victim of a faulty police investigation?  Was Brad Cooper the assumed suspect from the very start after a 911 call to Cary police on the day Nancy went missing?  Did detectives erase important information from Nancy's phone?  Did Cary police plant evidence on Brad's computer to suggest he conducted a google search of the area of where Nancy's body was found?  And what about the other man in Nancy's life that had a motive and knew Nancy's run route by his own admission.  Why was he never considered a suspect?
