Carol M Cooper was last seen at her residence at Armour Homes. This was an assisted living center. It was located in the 8100 block of Wornall in Kansas City, Missouri. This event occurred on September 17, 2004. Cooper left there on foot and never returned. She has never been heard from again.

It was December 24, 1999. And it was nearly five years before she went missing. On that date, Cooper was beaten, raped and robbed of $225 by a stranger in her home. It was located in the 4700 block of Jarboe Street in Kansas City. Cooper described the perpetrator as an African-American male in his mid-thirties, 5’10 and 160 pounds.

Authorities got a DNA profile of her attacker. And they filed six “John Doe” felony charges against the individual. Based on his DNA, investigators determined the man had also attacked two other elderly women in the Kansas City area. One incident occurring as recently as 2005.

In August 2007, Terry U. Birmingham was arrested in connection with the attack on Cooper. He went to trial in January 2010 and was convicted of forcible rape, robbery and burglary.

The attack distressed Cooper severely and she began experiencing headaches and depression after it occurred. It is unclear whether attack or Birmingham had anything to do with her later disappearance, but authorities do not think she left of her own accord or planned to harm herself.

She frequented the Independence Square and the County Club Plaza areas of Kansas City, and liked to attend cultural events. She swims and walks extensively. She has not used her passport, credit cards or bank accounts since September 2004.

Foul play is not suspected in her case, but authorities believe she may be deceased.
