FBI Closes The Book On The Country's Most Famous Unsolved Skyjacking Case
Closing one of the longest and most exhaustive cases in the agency’s history, the FBI is no longer investigating the mystery of the skyjacker known as D.B. Cooper.
45 years ago Cooper vanished out of the back of a hijacked Boeing 727 into a freezing northwest rain wearing a business suit, a parachute and a pack with $200,000 in cash. The agency said it will preserve evidence from the case at its Washington, D.C. headquarters, but it doesn’t want further tips unless people find parachutes — or Cooper’s money.
Feliks Banel from Here & Now contributor KUOW in Seattle reminds us about America’s most famous unsolved skyjacking case.
