A newspaper in St. Paul, Minn., has reported the death by drowning of a former Ketchum woman.

In its Wednesday, July 6, edition, the StarTribune identified the victim as 19-year-old Glenn Cooper, who most recently lived in Boise. The newspaper stated that Cooper's body was found in the Mississippi River on Tuesday and identified on Wednesday.

According to the StarTribune, authorities had been searching for Cooper since July 1, when she was seen in the river near the Hennepin Avenue Bridge in Minneapolis.


The newspaper reported that police do not suspect foul play.

Cooper is the daughter of former Ketchum resident Kelly Cooper. She is the granddaughter of Glenn Janss, founder of the Sun Valley Center for the Arts, and the step-granddaughter of the late Bill Janss, former owner of Sun Valley Resort. She is the niece of former Olympic ski racer Christin Cooper.
