  • Details of Disappearance

    Cooper had an active lifestyle in 2004 and utilized public transportation to get around. She frequented the Independence Square and the County Club Plaza areas of Kansas City, and liked to attend cultural events. She swims and walks extensively. She has not used her passport, credit cards or bank accounts since September 2004. Foul play is not suspected in her case, but authorities believe she may be deceased.

    Cooper was beaten, raped and robbed of $225 by a stranger in her home in the 4700 block of Jarboe Street in Kansas City on December 24, 1999, nearly five years before she went missing.
    The attack distressed Cooper severely and she began experiencing headaches and depression after it occurred. It is unclear whether the attack had anything to do with her later disappearance, but authorities do not think she left of her own accord or planned to harm herself.
