Isolated Incident
The tragic murder of Nancy Cooper gripped the Raleigh / Durham region of North Carolina. Nancy, a beautiful housewife and mother, was strangled to death in her upscale neighborhood in Cary, North Carolina in 2008. Her husband, Brad Cooper, was immediately suspected in what appeared to be a rush to judgment by local law enforcement in order to appease a nervous community. Brad was later arrested and then convicted of Nancy’s murder. For many, the question remains, did they get the right person? Did the evidence convict Brad of murder or did he merely fit the narrative that the husband did it, which provided a quick solution to an unsolved murder? The murder conviction was overturned by the Court of Appeals, which called into question many of the assumptions regarding what happened to Nancy. Isolated Incident unravels many of the overlooked and ignored details of this very troubling case.
