The questions were initially about Kellie and their breakup – and her whereabouts the night before. Also where he was the night before.

Asked if he owned a camo jacket and a motorcycle. Cooper confirmed he did.

Cooper was read his rights before the questioning became more accusatory and that was done on tape.

After reading his rights, he agreed to continue talking to him.

Ryan noticed Cooper’s “forearms had apparent scratch marks and his right hand appeared to be swollen, especially right around the knuckle.”

They had forgotten to take pictures of Cooper’s arms at the station so they did that at Cooper’s home.

Ryan asked if he had been in a fight, they appeared recent.
