OHIO MOM NEEDS HELP NOW! 9 MONTH OLD RAPED~KILLED~ RUNNING OUT OF TIME TO KEEP MURDERDER IN JAIL
Here is her plea:
In August of 1979 a baby just three months shy of her very first birthday was raped and beaten by a man named Christopher Cooper. Little Monica Williams laid in her hospital bed for five days fighting for her life because her little heart was strong and her mother says she was a fighter for sure. Poor little Monica lost the battle for her life on August 16, 1979.
Monica’s mother, Becky Potter of Findlay, Ohio said, “I need to keep him in prison for this. There is no excuse, no excuse, and as long as I’m able to walk and my jaw is able to flap you will hear from me.”
“She never had a chance to be a cheerleader graduate from high school, or go on to college,” she continued. “It’s very tough. All you have to do is look at the picture and see she was going to be a good girl.”
Becky honestly thinks if this man is set free back into society, everyone will be in danger. The family is saying the best way to stop him from being released on parole would be for everyone they can find to write a letter to the parole board requesting he stay in prison and away from children.
“He’s murdered once an infant,” says Monica’s uncle, Michael Saum. “If you can find an infant worthy of lusting over and the things he’s done to her, there is no excuse in it you can’t rehabilitate someone like that.”
If you want to help the fight to keep this man in prison please send a letter to
Ohio Board of Parole, Office of Victim Services
770 W. Broad St.
You are asked to include the convicted killer’s name which is Christopher Cooper as well as his inmate number which is A158707. Each letter counts as one request no matter how many signatures you have on it. They say that all letters need to be signed, dated and include a return address on the envelope by December 1, 2009.

My Letter will be in the Mail this week! I will be copying and pasting little Monica's photo at the Top of my Letter also, to make it so the Parole Board can see her little face when reading my letter! Adding a photo if you can, helps personalize the case file and the public's objection. We have to Speak out for this tiny 9 months old baby that was Raped and Killed.
Please help !!! WE ONLY HAVE A FEW WEEKS UNTIL DECEMBER 1ST TO GET OUR LETTERS TO PAROLE BOARD
I will write a letter today and get it out.He should have been sentenced to death !! How can they even think of paroleing him ??? Love...john
Here is the email address to make it easier!
Let's get some letters to make sure this guy doesn't get out!
Delilah will an email have the same weight as a written letter. It would be easier to email but can write letter too if needed.
EVERYONE, I HAVE POSTED THIS BLOG FOR ONE OF OUR MEMBERS CYNDI!!!! SHE POSTED THIS IN THE GROUP FOR ABUSED CHILDREN,, AND I EMAILED HER ASKING PERMISSION TO POST IT ON THE FRONT PAGE SO THAT WE COULD HOPEFULLY GET MORE EYES ON THIS ASAP! WITH HER PERMISSION AND REQUEST, I POSTED THIS POST ON HER BEHALF AND THE FAMILIES BEHALF.
I JUST WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU CYNDI FOR BRINGING THIS TO ALL OF OUR ATTENTIONS! HOPEFULLY WE CAN ALL PULL TOGETHER AND HELP THIS FAMILY.... HUGS..
AND THANK YOU DELILAH FOR THE OTHER INFORMATION ALSO:
I will write it out when i get off of here,and put mine in the mail tommorrow,and i will get some of my friends to do the same there is no way he should ever get out,this system we have is really messed up and scary,we all should be able to live in PEACE, not fear and walk on egg shels all the time!!!!!
Marie, A Snail Mailed letter through the Post office would hold more weight! They call it a paper trail for the file?
However, both methods could be utilized, for example: follow up with an email also and even a phone call too!!! I'm extreamly greedy! when it comes to this type of need, and will use every method available in conjunction.
OR: If it is the last few days and you know your hard copy letter would not make it before the deadline, Please everyone DO use the Email method! ( But we need Hard Copies Badly)
I could stand corrected on this, and if anyone has any input, please do contribute! thank you...
I haven't been online a lot lately,and haven't been doing enough to help peace4themissing....this caught my eye today as I was hurriedly dealing with way too much,including some menacing behavior as well as a neighbor who had her home broken into as she was sleeping.THIS caught me just after those incidents...I was unable to grasp the title line;why in hell are"they" even considering now or ever letting this POS"out"...
I will send this far and wide,thank you for also the fax phone and email addys.
The entire country BETTER pull their heads out,this is getting to be....I have no words,it is still trying to get through my head&heart.
R.I.P. little Monica
My God,what's it gonna take!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
