DB Cooper Identified!

For months now, Sherlock Investigations has been working on the notorious DB Cooper case. DB Cooper, in case you don't know, hijacked a Northwest Orient plane in 1971 and extorted $200,000 from the airline, saying that he had a bomb in his briefcase. He also demanded four parachutes along with the money. After the plane was airborne, he did the unheard of...he bailed out, with the cash strapped to himself.

Years later, some $5800 in cash was found along the Columbia River in Washington, but his yellow and red parachute, and more importantly, DB Cooper, were never found.

The man buying the ticket for that flight used the name Dan Cooper. After the heist, the media interviewed a man named D.B. Cooper. Somehow the name stuck, and DB Cooper became sort of a folk hero.

For almost 36 years now (the hijacking took place on Thanksgiving Eve, November 24, 1971) the FBI has been trying to solve the case. They've interviewed thousands of people and have had many leads, but have come up empty-handed.

Professional and amateur sleuths have followed the case for years. Several people have come forward and said that they're DB Cooper. Others have said that their deceased loved-one was DB Cooper.

Sherlock Investigations has been investigating a man who fits the profile more than any other suspect, and we believe that our suspect was the real DB Cooper.

Very soon, a major weekly magazine will feature our suspect, and how we found him. The article includes photos. Watch your newstand!
