The Mystery of D.B. Cooper

Recommended Posts

Quote

The Mystery of D.B. Cooper brings to life the stories of four individuals fervently believed by their family and friends to be “D.B. Cooper,” the mystery man who hijacked a 727 flying out of Seattle, traded the passengers’ lives for $200,000 and four parachutes, lept from the jet over some of Washington state’s roughest terrain, and was never heard from again. Almost 50 years later, the case continues to confound the FBI and inspire wild speculation as it remains the only unsolved airplane hijacking in United States history.‌ The film draws from a combination of recreated and archival footage, as well as exclusive interviews with those most connected to the infamous case and its likeliest culprit, and explores how the heist inspired copycat hijackings around the world and elevated Cooper to “legend” status before his plane even touched back down on land. ‌

They really didn't investigate much; in fact, they seemed to focus on five people who swore it was someone they knew. Oddly enough, two suspects were trans. Another was a girl's uncle, I saw her on a NatGeo show about D.B. Cooper and she turned out to be a kook. The fourth one was a copycat who did the same thing the next week in the same manner. The most convincing was the last one, who was this woman's late husband who was some kind of conman who , in hindsight, said and did things that made her think it was him.

The only two credible ones were the conman and the copycat, but even those stories has some handwaving attached to them. The conman looked nothing like the sketch, while the copycat could have posed for it.

My biggest problem with the copycat was that it seemed more likely the similarities to D.B. were from him repeating what the first guy did. 

The conman seemed like a good candidate, but no one investigated whether he said anything that was not available to the public already. I mean, was there anything that only Cooper would know that wasn't public knowledge?  🤔
