Cary Police Chief Pat Bazemore says she is confident her department will solve Nancy Cooper's murder. One month ago on July 12, Nancy Cooper, 34, went missing. Her husband, Brad Cooper, told police she was last seen leaving the house to go for an early morning jog. Her body was found in Wake County two days later.

Police still have no suspects or persons of interest in the case, but in a statement released Tuesday, Chief Bazemore is reassured the community that Cooper's murder is still a top priority. "While I will not comment on the specifics of our work, I will say that I am very pleased with the progress we're making and am very proud of the tireless and professional effort that is underway," the statement read.

Bazemore goes onto point out, "Cary remains one of the safest communities in the nation, and I appreciate all the support we continue to receive from Nancy's family and friends, our citizens and the many agencies that are assisting us in this matter."

Investigators say the crime is isolated, not random.
