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.

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
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
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
Dr. John Alexander as a major when
he was, at the time of its writing, a Lieutenant Colonel. It makes
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
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.
