D.B. Cooper: Case CLosed? – Documentary on History Channel

Posted by: on Jul 10, 2016 | No Comments

I have been part of a 40 person nationwide cold case team investigating the 1971 unsolved D.B. Cooper hijacking of a Boeing 727 aircraft in the airspace between Portland, Oregon, and SeattleWashington, on November 24, 1971.  The man known as D.B. Cooper successfully extorted $200,000 in ransom and parachuted out of the plane with the cash never to me identified or caught.

The History Channel will be broadcasting a two-night documentary entitled “D.B. Cooper: Case Closed?”on Sunday (7/10) and Monday (7/11), that highlights the cold case team 5-year investigation and the 95 pieces of evidential information that targets one man still alive.

I came on board to help the team as a forensic consultant in 2013.  I provided an analysis on the FBI’s four key hijacking witnesses, and their recall of events on the plane during the hijacking, which will be contained in the accompanying book, The Last Master Outlaw, by Thomas J. Colbert and Tom Szollosi, that highlights the investigation and will be available on 7/12/2016.
