As the article itself identifies "gaps [in the story] are often filled with rumour, half-truths and make believe", which pretty-much sums-up the idea floated that Cooper's actions were in any way related to the compulsory purchase of land - there has been both a drama-documentary and a documentary on television this year about the the crimes committed by John Cooper, which give a clear picture of his motivations.
