    Supposedly he did a stint in the Army in Iraq, where he served alongside Logan Hayes. Then he signed on to make some quick cash as one of James Craig's goons in the Metro Court hostage crisis of '07. He was locked in the safe with Maxi Jones during the 24-hour standoff and she convinced him to stick around Port Charles -- IF he didn't get busted or die!

    He took a job as a cadet in the PCPD and ended up dating Maxie. They broke up for a while, but had just started to reconcile when he was found hanging in his room above Kelly's.

    Monday, January 28 2008: Coop's Dead.

    "Cut him down!" Maxi is screaming as she sees Coop hanging from a noose in his room. Mike and then Jason rush upstairs and tell her that he's dead. Mike takes her back downstairs as Jason scopes the room for clues. Downstairs, Logan and Lulu are shocked to hear that Coop is dead.

    Friday, January 25 2008: A Shocking Purchase.

    Coop has come home and found Logan waiting for him. He says that he was looking for some cash but found the PCPD DNA results instead. Rather than let Coop explain himself, he says that before Georgie was killed she was looking into his background and found out about the female private who was strangled where they were stationed in Iraq. Coop affirms that he is not the text message killer! He explains that he did see Georgie in the park the night she was killed and she freaked. He tried to calm her down and even reached out to her, but she fought him. He says that's the only way that his DNA ended up under her nails. He left, but warned her not to stay out there alone. Coop says that he just wants to get Maxie out of town - for her own safety. Coop reminds Logan that there are things about him, too, that no one knows. Logan tells Coop that as far as he is concerned he is the person of interest.

    Daniel, the new guy at Kelly's, shows up for work and Mike asks him why he blew off his dinner shift last night. Coop and Logan come down stairs and Logan tells Coop that he'll see him around. Coop asks Daniel for change and then says that he remembers him as one of the catering employees from the B&W ball.
