Sorry. I hate to throw shade on this, but being one of Cooper's early acolytes (I discovered his book Behold a Pale Horse when I was in 6th grade and
it made me an insta-tinfoil hatter), I feel confident enough to say this. After years of following him, and finally his tragic end, I can say he
genuinely was suffering from mental illness. Read the book if you haven't -- he discovered it in a copy machine?!
Later editions of the book also published photos of a "grey alien" being whisked away by secret service -- the same photos that appeared in the pages
of the vaunted Weekly World News rag.
Cooper was a paranoid schizophrenic who died after an armed showdown with police. Period.
