D.B.Cooper, who on Thanksgiving eve 1971 parachuted from a jetliner he had hijacked somewhere SW of Mt St Helens with $200,000 in his backpack has never been ID'ed, nor has his body ever been found. Last night on the 11pm local CBS news we learned 2 local 'Sleuthers' now have come to learn his real name and say he is alive and well and they plan to go have a little chat with him! They have talked to him twice and now plan to confront him with what they have learned and see what his reaction is. I'm sorry the only link I have is this video: http://www.koin.com/Global/SearchResults.asp?qu=d+b+cooper&x=11&y=7 I do remember the gist of what was said, however. This man lived in a little house very close to Vancouver lake which in turn lies next to the Columbia river. They said he buried the money in the sand along the river, and sometime in the '80's some of that money surfaced on the bank of the river. The bill #'s matched. This person was trained in parachuting, was a trained pilot and had a record for armed robbery. There were 6 calls to the FBI right away giving them the same name who this was. In fact there was a call to the FBI the night of the hijacking from this person, who told them he didn't want them to think he had done it. This person later came into a lot of money. I'll call channel 6 and see if there is a regular link, but thought y'all would be interested. This solidifying of who D.B. was is the work of two regular working guys, one an electrician, who Sleuth on the side. They might have solved one of the most mysterious missing persons/hijacking cases in the Northwest! Scandi ETA: The names of the 2 Sleuthers are Matt Myers and Dan Devorak. Should I invite them to join Websleuths?
