On February 11, 2016, two individuals walking along the Great Salt Lake shore line discovered what they thought was a mannequin. As they approached it, they were stunned to find a young man, murdered. Former Salt Lake County Sheriff Jim Winder explains what happened, and how the public can help solve this terrible crime. *** On February 11th of this year, two individuals walking along the Great Salt Lake shore line discovered what they thought was a mannequin. As they approached it, they were stunned to find a young man. Young Chandler Cooper, a 22-year old male from Holladay, had apparently been lured to the location by individuals who we still have not yet identified. The Unified Police Department immediately responded, and have been investigating the crime ever since. During the course of that investigation, we have determined that individuals—more than likely known to Chandler—led him to that location and, based on a dispute, they executed Chandler and left him for dead. While Chandler was left there on the shoreline, we are unsure of how he actually arrived at the location. No vehicles, or signs of vehicles, were identified near or around his location. While we have significant leads in the case, much of the information still needs to be pieced together. What we don’t know are the specific actions of Mr. Chandler, and those that may have committed this crime, during the week of February 4th-10th. It’s critical that we identify these suspects and bring them to justice. If you have information regarding this case, please contact detectives at 385-468-9815.

During the holiday season, the way we decorate our homes may actually have an impact on the security of our homes. Former Salt Lake County Sheriff Jim Winder shares a few safety tips to help keep your family and Christmas packages safe. *** It’s the holiday season once again, and with that it brings a lot of joy. One of the traditions that I think we can all relate to is the placing of the packages underneath the tree. Unfortunately, it can provide a real risk. Remember that individuals that are walking through our neighborhoods and could look into a window and see brightly colored packages placed under a tree often may not have the best of intentions. We would suggest strongly that you keep those presents out from under the tree until Santa comes to visit. Often times we order online and those packages are brought to our home. Increasingly, individuals are following those delivery services and taking packages from our doorsteps. It’s important that you have a plan in place to receive those packages, especially if it’s valuable. One might have it delivered to a relative or a neighbor, and pick it up later. If you’re not going to be home, be sure that you leave specific instructions with the delivery company on how to place the package so it prevents theft. A little pre-planning will make sure that those packages will end up in the right hands.
