    Maybe he did die after jumping and someone else found him and took the money, got rid of his body and the chute.

    I was watching buzzfeed unsolved in an airport and my mom kept looking over my shoulder and I asked if she wanted to watch. When I scrolled past this she read DB and picked it. She and I were laughing and she was yelling at the screen that his name is DB. My mom now loves Shane Madej

    I think it is very weird that FBI does not willingly check his shuitcase and the brown bag that he carried with him or the cctvs at the airport with the help of the flight attendance to recognize that man so they may have a perfect base to give theory and if the case covered 1000s of suspect but do they include the people on board or with the locals what do you people think?

    If D.B. Cooper was employed by Boeing as an engineer it would make sense that he wore a clip on tie. Clip on ties, if caught in machinery while on the job, will snap off instead of tightening and choking the wearer of said tie to death, or breaking his neck.

    Something I find odd is that, the Registration of the 727 aircraft (N467US)
    cannot be found on a popular site called PlaneSpotters which literally has records of pretty much every airliner aircrafts.

    it’s actually an extremely smart idea to; if he asks for parachutes, give him non-functioning ones therefore making it certain that he would fall to his death.. gruesome but effective i guess lmao

    • Phoebe5448
      Phoebe5448 Day ago

      According to one theory, a couple of the parachutes were military grade ones/duds so they were hard to open. So... yeah. You can guess how that turned out?

    Uncle Frank Painter is, DB Cooper. My ex wife's uncle is he. He was paratrooper in the great war, a CIA operative, survivalist since young, (when he would show up weeks later after a camping trip(s).) Changing his name to Eugene something. My exes' family was visited, in a small town in Nevada, "where is Frank?"they would ask, also, his brother, George, has the same nose. If I'm wrong , why did the FBI visit the family? Well, he is living up near the Canadian border, they (the CIA) owed him one, one last one, no one got hurt, and he got to do his last blast before retirement. They know right where he is...

    Today they think he died.... it’s not confirmed but a 75 year old man who many thought was cooper died today, and he looks IDENTICAL to the sketches

  • Master Oogway
    Master Oogway 6 days ago

    If he survived the jump why did he leave most of the money in the bag on the riverbank? If you went through all the trouble to get all that money and jump out of an airplane, wouldn't you take it all with you? Why did a little boy find like 75% of the money 9 years later?
    Dan Cooper is not going to be like I really don't need all of this, and leave most of it on the shore. Pretty sure the guy died on impact.

      They didn't keep track of it. It got mixed up with the other dishes. They did get DNA from his tie which is probably Coopers' DNA. They also have his fingerprints.

    what if DB cooper never jumped but instead hid in the cargo hold of the plane?

    • 1981lashlarue
      1981lashlarue 3 days ago

      The FBI thoroughly searched the plane when it landed. Every inch of it looking for evidence and clues. Plus, Cooper couldn't have escaped from the plane after landing without being detected amidst the mob of people, reporters, police, etc.waiting for them when it landed.
