On November 24, 1971, the eve of Thanksgiving “Dan Cooper” entered into infamy and mystery when he parachuted from the plane he had just hijacked with 21 lbs. of $20 bills and disappeared into the night, forever. This case remains one of the most enduring mysteries of the 20th century.
In a story that may well have conspiracy theorists buzzing for decades, the suspicious death of a man who is believed to have packed infamous hijacker D.B. Cooper’s parachutes, has been ruled a homicide. Further investigation will reveal, it is hoped, whether this is a strange coincidence, or not.
