Michael Keith Moore, a convict already serving 3 life sentences, has been charged with the murder. It now appears that Moore is going back on what appeared to be a deal with the DA to plead guilty. The Cooke’s do not deserve this. They deserve justice.
I had the opportunity and pleasure to meet Robert Cooke, Rachel’s dad, in Aruba while searching for Natalee Holloway. We were actually roommates for most of my 2 week stay there searching in the landfill and all over the island. Like many volunteer of Texas EquuSearch, their lives have been upturned by the loss of a loved one. Robert and I stayed up rather late one night discussing his missing daughter’s case and all that they had been through. The names change, but the parents stories are so similar. We wish Robert and his wife and their family all the best and hope that they finally get “Justice for Rachel”.
