We are posting these reports more or less as we have received them. We are deeply saddened at the loss of Bill Cooper. We have had communications with him and members of our egroup have chatted with him over the years as well. We didn’t always see eye to eye, and we often felt that Bill was not as aware as he might be about how his own mind could be manipulated. But whatever the reason, whether he was manipulated to do something that got him killed, or whether everyone involved in this situation was being manipulated or not, we don’t know. Nevertheless, it is a sad end for Bill. We are very sorry for his family.


Sheriff’s Deputy Shot - Original:

The notice on this story says: (Copyright 2001 Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed) so we aren’t reproducing it here. It may, of course, disappear.


The gist of it is:

A sheriff’s deputy in Arizona was shot while trying to arrest William Milton Cooper. The deputy was hospitalized in critical condition, but Bill Cooper was not. He was dead. This occurred around midnight last night. The reason they were trying to arrest Cooper was, as far as I can tell, because he "had a handgun."

Here is a private report:

Update on William Cooper

At 1:00 p.m. mountain time Nov 6th we received a call from Officer Frank Valenzuela form Az. Dept of Public Safety, This call came to us as a result of our calling the sheriff’s office to confirm that this incident had happened, he informed us that this level of entrapment for Mr. Cooper started at 11:40 p.m. mt. time Nov. 5th 2001 by luring Bill Cooper away from his home which sat on top of a hillside in the community of Edgar ,Az his physical address was 96 North Clearview Circle , Edgar, Az. The departments of Edgar and Apache law enforcement were working together. They claimed that they had gone out to serve 3 felony warrants, pertaining to someone having had a semi-automatic pistol drawn on them by Bill Cooper.

At this time we do not have that info as to whom that was who filed a complaint.

Officers deliberately caused a ruckus to get this man away from his home to create this entrapment He went down the hill away from his home to the automobile to see what the ruckus was, it was 2 law officers in plain clothes. He spoke to them then got back in his car to go back up to his house , when out of hiding came a patrol car that blocked his return to his home. He put his hands on the car window as we assume that is what he was ordered to do as they approached his car he pulled out to get around the car .


He got out of his car and tried to run for his home. Shots were fired. He returned fire hitting one officer in the head twice whom is in surgery in St Joe’s hospital. The other officer continued to fire until Cooper was dead. Please keep in mind this report was given to us by the sheriffs office and here are the numbers.. 928-333-5580, 1-800-352-1850

William Cooper authored the book Behold A Pale Horse. He was also battling the IRS. He also was a well known radio talk show host. We here at MOM have a problem with this report.



Who is Milton William Cooper

by Don Ecker

William Milton Cooper, author of "Behold a Pale Horse," was killed in a shootout with sheriff’s deputies in Eagar, Arizona today. Cooper was host of a talk show broadcast by Worldwide Christian Radio out of Nashville. He was well known in the UFO community for his radical view that there were a number of alien species present on earth, and that they were unspeakably evil.

He led a drive to identify Whitley Strieber as a CIA agent, and considered most conventional UFO researchers, including Stanton Friedman, Linda Moulton Howe and many others, to be agents of a conspiracy devoted to concealing the evil alien presence so that it could do its bidding on earth untroubled by human resistance.

He considered Art Bell a conspiratorial proponent of a new world order that he believed would destroy human freedom, and devoted many pages of his website to diatribes against Bell.

In defense of his claim that Strieber was a CIA operative, he produced a document that was allegedly written in 1981 that "activated" Strieber and a number of other individuals, including Richard Hoagland in a program called "Project Enable." Among other inaccuracies, the document identifies Dr. John Alexander as a major when he was, at the time of its writing, a Lieutenant Colonel. It makes reference to Project Stargate, but is dated in 1981, when the military remote viewing program was still called Project Grill Flame.

When deputies attempted to arrest Cooper this morning, a gun battle broke out. One Apache County deputy received two gunshots to the head. The deputy was in critical condition at a Phoenix hospital. Cooper, who had a handgun, was killed.

Cooper served with the Strategic Air command until 1965. He was also a naval officer. He was discharged from the Navy in 1975.

In March of 1999, Cooper sent his family out of the United States. He remained alone at his home in Arizona, where he was killed.

On the official William Cooper website, his family states that his death was apparently not related to his opposition to the federal government, but came as a result of a sheriff’s deputy’s attempt to serve a warrant in a local matter.
