Murder suspect details drug issues
Bryan Cook - suspect

Law enforcement officials are looking for Bryan Cooke in connection to the murders of his in-laws, Gary and Gail Dodson. He is believed to be driving a white Jeep Grand Cherokee.

In getting a snapshot of Cooke, he appears to have endured drug problems and admits to stealing to feed his drug addiction. The following comments come from a Facebook post Cooke made March 12:

"Who am I? I am a drug addict. I love drugs and don't care who I hurt when I am on them. I am an adulterer. I have cheated on my wife in the past. I am a liar. I have lied to my wife continuously throughout our marriage. I am a thief. I have stolen lots of money from the people I love the most. I have broke into houses, stole money, stole pills. I have abused my wife one time when I was so strung out on drugs that I threw her down on the bed and got on top of her to get the keys out of her pocket. Which caused her to not be able to breathe and panicked! I have not been the best father to my children because I used drugs and that made me put them on the back burner and disregard their feelings and caused a lot of emotional trauma in their lives. I also was about to give up on my marriage because I thought I loved someone else and was self- centered in my thinking. But you know what, I have been forgiving of all these things by God thru repentance in Jesus Christ! I have been forgiving by a lot of people I have harmed and mentioned. Some I am still working on and some won't , which is fine cause that's the consequences of my actions. My wife has forgaven me and wants to make our marriage work. My kids are seeing a change in me and are starting to put a little trust in me day after day. I have forgiven myself. I am a New creature on Christ with a renewed mind! I have friends who will stick by me and a support system who will always be there for me. So, with that said, I am not going to watch my wife be attacked by her family members who are suppose to support her in her life and decisions, not influence her in anyway, but support her. So,when you verbally attack my wife with words that are not true and get involved when you shouldn't, then yeah I am going to stick up for my wife."
