[ARCHIVED] Police Identify Body Recovered

James City County Police Department patrol vehicle

On Dec. 24 at approximately 4:30 p.m., officers were dispatched to a wooded, creek area behind the 6600 block of Richmond Road after two individuals walking their dogs located a deceased person. The decedent was transported to the Tidewater Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

The subject has been identified as Charles Wayne Cooper, 26-years-old of Norfolk, VA.  Cooper was previously reported as missing to James City County Police earlier this month. Police had received information that Cooper had been located safe; however, it was later determined that this information was not accurate.

The Medical Examiner has not ruled on the cause of death, but no foul play is suspected.

This case remains under investigation.
