Not sure what to think about Bill, below are details on his death. If he was telling the truth they did a good job of making him look like a jack
He seems like he was an interesting fella...
By 1998, the USA federal government had several outstanding warrants for Cooper and his wife for tax evasion and bank fraud. Cooper’s Chinese-born
wife, Annie, and their two daughters had left the United States in June 2000; Cooper remained at his home in Eagar, Apache County, Arizona.
Cooper had made it clear, both online and on air, that he would not surrender to the police. 'According to Glenn Jacobs, a local newspaperman who
knew Cooper, "he kept an AK-47 just inside his front door by a magazine rack."' 8
At 11:40 pm, 5 November, 2001, Apache County Sheriff’s deputies attempted to serve an arrest warrant at Cooper’s residence. Earlier that day
Cooper had seen a man driving past his home, ran out, jumped in his car and drove after the man, forcing him to pull over, and threatening him at
gunpoint. The man, a local doctor, waited until Cooper left then called the police, who issued a warrant against Cooper for "aggravated assault with
a deadly weapon."
Cooper’s home contained a number of firearms, and he had lost a leg in a motorcycle accident many years before.9 Police believed that if they could
lure Cooper out of his home they would have a better chance of arresting him.
"Members of the Apache Country Sheriff’s Office deployed several deputies in the area adjacent to Cooper’s home in an attempt to draw him from
his residence to serve an arrest warrant. After leaving his residence in his vehicle, Cooper confronted plainclothes deputies a short distance away.
As Cooper drove back to his residence, Sheriff’s deputies attempted to stop him using a fully marked patrol vehicle to block the roadway. Cooper
refused to stop or comply with verbal orders issued by deputies. Cooper drove around the patrol vehicle, off the roadway, and attempted to run over a
sergeant before heading back to his residence. Cooper was followed a short distance to the front of his residence where he was again confronted by
uniformed deputies. After refusing once again to comply with orders from deputies, Cooper exited his vehicle and ran toward his house, firing shots
from a handgun towards deputies. Deputy Robert Marinez of the Apache County Sheriff’s Office was struck in the head by at least one round. Deputies
returned fire, striking and fatally wounding Cooper." 10
On 15 November, a memorial service was held for Cooper at the Jewkes Mortuary in Eagar, Arizona. Shortly after his death, internet reports of a press
conference that William Cooper had allegedly held two weeks before his death began to appear. These have been denied by his website as being a hoax.
